Keystone also made toys for J.C. Penny, the famous department store chain. The J.C. Penny name of their toys was "Ride-Em", and these toys entered the market in 1932. Each toy made of a Packard truck had the famous Packard logo placed at the front of the truck. As well, each and every toy also had the Keystone logo, usually on the side of the toy. In 1937, the Packard line of toys was phased out along with the Packard logo. A new design to the Keystone toys began with a new cab (for the driver and passengers), and a new hood. The new hood had horizontal ribs or louvres at the sides.
Before the start of WWII, Keystone purchased the tools and dies from another famous company of toys at the time - Kingsbury Toys (New Hampshire, USA). Kingsbury, sadly (for toy aficionados and children alike) had decided to venture off in a different direction to manufacturer dies. The good news is that that great toy company is today still in business.
There's still more history, but for today, I'll stop. I'm presenting the toys mostly from the 1920's that are still around, and in great shape. I don't think people in 80-100 years from now willbe able to say that about the current and mostly plastic toys.
The wheel of the ambulance are not that colour. I didn't have the time to properly colour correct them to their true black.
