Any toy collectors?
 
Started getting into vintage toy collecting. Would love to see other's collection or vintage toy's. Also would love to know if there are any forums for vintage toys. Here are a few of mine.

I collect, accumulate toys from my childhood ( 60s-70s). If I come across a game, lunchbox or toy I used to have- I try to buy it
What I'd really like is to find my first bike- Forest green 1968 Schwinn Stingray that I got for X mas from Santa

Toys in Babeland
 
Have some model car kits and a King Kong board game. My King Kong model kit is missing King, but the original box is still here.

I still have some of my old, original steel Tonka toys that I played with as a kid plus about 15 yrs ago I started collecting Muscle Machines in the 1/18th scale.

My local Wal-Mart quit carrying them for some reason so I quit collecting them but I see they are, or are getting quite popular on E-Bay.

Before the toy craze took hold,back in 1965,I went to a coin auction in Lambertville ,N.J. someone put a wind up Popeye from the '50s AND that "DogPatch" windup band with Lil Abner and the family.But is arms were missing,played great ,and best of all included the original box.no one bid on them so I bought both for 15.00 each !!!!

mrmantlecollector 05-15-2016 02:02 PM

I don't actively collect them anymore, but I still have several dozen vintage Cracker Jack pieces 1910-1930's. The red tin trains and white camper in the OP are 1930's Cracker Jack pieces.

You are correct on the Cracker jack pieces. Would love to see a pic of your collection.

Well, I'm not going to lie. I'm too lazy to post a pic right now. :D

I have almost every metal train engine (not any of the cars) from 1912 (the very first one), through the 1930's, including the rare 1933 Eagle Flyer.

I also have many Dowst (became Tootsietoy) cars/ships/charms from the 1910's-1920's.

Some of my favorites are the celluloid insert charms - vases, pipes, lamps, etc.

The pictures on the cover of the box for the models always looked great. Then when you opened it, a bunch of plastic that needed painting! My favorite thing to do was to put the Air Force or USA decals on the airplane models.

Went by the office. Of course my boss is a 'oil can' collector.
But he also picked up some old toys. The Pokey horse and Gumby. He is looking for Pokey (the horse).
