1970’s Litho Tin Play Toys Set of 2

Year: 1970’s
Manufacturer: Unknown
Condition: Good to very good condition
Vintage collectables

A pair of tin play toys, one a wind up and the other a squeeze-style action toy. They are lithographed tin, probably made by the same company. The pair of wrestlers has a “Made in India” sticker on the underside. Squeezing the U shaped piece under the two wrestlers causes them to rock back and forth. It’s a simple but clever idea. 5 1/2” tall x 3” wide. The chicken has a key to wind it up. Remove the key, set the chicken on a flat surface and he starts hopping. The chicken is 1 1/2” tall x 2” wide. There’s a little paint missing where the two wrestlers rub against each other but they both work great!

1990’s Tonka Engine No. 5 Fire Pumper Truck
1990’s Tonka Engine No. 5 Fire Pumper Truck

Year: 1990’s
Manufacturer: Tonka
Condition: Good condition
First edition vintage collectable

The first thing most people say about a vintage metal Tonka toy is “they sure don’t make toys like that anymore”. The Tonka Engine No. 5 Fire Pumper Truck is a great example of a solid, well made toy built to last. At nearly TWO FEET long, No. 5 is large from an adult’s perspective. For a child, it must have seemed absolutely HUGE! It has a working ladder control tp raise the ladder, with a second control to double the length of the ladder to 32″ long! The siren doesn’t work but turning the crank produces an idling diesel engine sound. It has a few vintage scratches from light play, but it’s in great shape with all parts intact. The Tonka name is embosssed on the front grille, on the back of the truck and on all the wheels. The wheels look great and the truck rolls like new. See photos.
