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.

I've never seen this Chein oil tanker before, especially with the rear doors that open up.
Buddy 'L' Pressed Steel Wrigley's
Truck and Semi No. 953
Railway Express Agency Truck
Wrigley and Chicklets were 2 of the biggest gum manufacturers in North America when I was growing up. Chicklets came in rectangular form like many of today's gums, while Wrigley's gum came in aluminum foiled strips.
So these 2 items are ones that I was able to add to this post.
It's also first time that I see this Buddy 'L' Wrigley's Railway Express Truck.
I've seem a few other toys with the Wrigley name as well.
