Reproduction Vintage Tin Toys
Made today using the same time-honored techniques that were employed by toy makers of a bygone era, these delightful tin toys are made for adults to reminisce and enjoy. Each tin collectible starts as a flat sheet of metal that is printed and then cut into its many separate pieces. Each piece is then formed into its final shape by passing through numerous tooling stations until its final shape is achieved. These separate pieces are then hand assembled to create a single finished product. Because this is such a labor-intensive process, it is easy to see why tin manufacturing was abandoned. The original tin toys are highly sought after by collectors around the world. Meant to be used as decoration pieces. Not toy tested.
