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 been finding all kinds of interesting toys this week on ebay, so I've continued to search there.
I saw a nice Smith-Miller toy, that was out of the "norm" from the usual Smith-Miller toys that I've seen. The "usual" Smith-Miller toys are the trucks or trucks with semis that they haul. This toy happens to be a trailer from 1953, which is certainly different.

THe trailer was produced to take advantage of the "I Love Lucy" TV show,
and was made only in 1953. Trailer has a blue steel roof, and aluminum sides.
