This blog discusses old toys from the early 1920's to the end of the 1950's. All kinds of topics are discussed.
The time span was the greatest period for "hands-on" toys, where a young child could actually go outside and play for hours at a time.
You can see the elegance but simple design of these toys. It was a time when huge machines, and people made and finished toys by hand.
The era has long passed, but many of the toys are still around, and that is what I would like to share.

Most of the time, I visit the page for what people are selling currently on ebay. However, another great resource is to see what these same people have sold recently.
If you look to the right side of the page, you will see a rectangular space with the words "Top-rated seller". Under these words is the name of the seller's nickname on ebay, in this case being mikie70mach. In brackets is the number of sales (1967) and a red star. If you click on the number of sales, in this case 1967, you will be redirected to Michael's most recent sales on ebay.
When I came to this page, there were a nice group of cast iron toys that had been sold and these are shown below, except for the one below which was still being sold at the time.
Below are the past sales which were sold most recently.
THe photo of the 5 toys helps to give the reader a relative idea as to the different sizes of toys.
In the photo, you can see the orange taxi cab,
and the blue stake truck behind the road scraper on the left side.
