Synopsis

Metal toys decorated with comic characters like Betty Boop, Felix the Cat, Popeye, and Disney characters have been produced for over 70 years and continue to be collected and manufactured today. Among the most popular are those for the beach and sand box, including pails, watering cans, sieves, shovels, and rakes. The older toys have become valuable collectibles. Organized by the characters, this unusual new book includes the Katzenjammer Kids and Barney Google from the 1920s, and Disney characters from the 1930s, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck, Pinnochio, Snow White, and more. Other characters bring the toys through the decades to the present day: Baby Snooks, Bonzo, Charlie Chaplin, Davy Crockett, Kewpie, Oswald, Punch and Judy, Raggedy Ann, Hanna-Barbera characters, and TV characters such as Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants. Toymakers, include Ohio Art, J. Chein, T. Cohn, EGDA, Happynak, Alex Harvey, R.S.-La Isla, ASAM, Willow, and other international firms. The book is amply illustrated with 400 color photos.

This is a reference guide for all collectors of toys, bringing the authors' years of expertise and understanding of the marketplace to their readers. A value guide is included.
