Rubber Toy Vehicles Revisited

Rubber toys were made in the 1930's and 1940's. Molds were made in the shape of the toy, the melted rubber was  poured into the mold, allowed to cool off, then removed. Later, these toys would be painted. The main rubber toy companies were Auburn Rubber Company , Sun Rubber Company, and  the Barr Rubber Company. 

I've written about rubber toys before, so if you do a search in the upper right corner for the manufacturer's name or the words "rubber toys", 
you should be able to be redirected to the previous post.

When I was buying and selling toys on ebay, I managed to purchase a few of these toys.
What I like about them is that they were made of rubber. The rubber is quite flexible and bouncy, although I would advise not twisting the toy.

Thanks for dropping by,
and have a great part of the day or night.
