A Vindex Toy Catalogue

I've written many times about Vindex toys, a division of the National Sewing Machine Company, of Belvidere, Illinois (USA). This past week, I received  a toy catalogue from an ebay seller. The catalogue is a 1982 reproduction  from Thomas Toys, a fantastic toy parts seller from Fenton, Michigan (USA).

I thought  I'd share it with everyone, so that you'll be familiar with Vindex toys. You don't see as many of these cast iron toys, as you do the other manufacturers such ad Arcade or Hubley.  So the next time you're at a local old and antique toy fair, or an antique dealer, check out their toys. Who knows, maybe you'll be lucky and find a real bargain!

* I've only included the pages that relate to toys. Vindex also made some a toy oven, doorstops, an elephant nut cracker, and a doodle bug galoche (rubber boot) remover.
Also, I think this catalogue is from 1929.

So study this catalogue and print it out. And when you visit the local flea market, 
toy fair, or an antique store, be on the alert for Vindex toys!

Thanks for visiting,
and have a nice day or evening.
