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.

Pressed Steel Wreckers
Sunday, November 20, 2016 Cloudy with rain 6 Celsius 41 Fahrenheit
A few days ago, I wrote about cast iron wreckers. While having done a search on Bertoia Auctions website, I had also come across pressed steel wreckers. So today,that's what I'm writing about.
Most of these 1920's - 1930's pressed steel wreckers are relatively large compared to the cast iron toys. The 2 toys at the bottom are from the the 1940's.
The "real-life" wrecker must have been something very interesting to watch, since so many companies had made their version of a toy wrecker. Also, the wreckers from the 1930's are quite similar in their from part of the truck.
