Tiny Tin Toys

These little tin toys will fit in the palm of your hand.  They are delightful examples of how tin litho is as alluring in the small as in the large.

Toys like this were called "penny toys" in England.  This dog has interesting lithographed details.

The rocket was sold as a tin Yule ornament, and has a yellow cord fitted to the top. It is typical of the rockets seen in old science fiction movies.  Spaceman is from the same era, but he is made of plastic.
