  • Our german toys are a unique set of handmade, lead free and safe toys for children imported directly from Germany. Toys from the Erzgebirge region of Germany were originally made by ore miners as a hobby to help entertain their children. Once the mines of that region dried up the wooden toys became part of their livelihood. Our german toys, like all of our products are imported directly from the german craft studios or artisans. Our german craftsmen include renowned studios such as the Werner studios, Ebert studios, Gunther studios, among others. All toys are handmade and handpainted using safe materials and finishes.

Yes, German toys cost more than , but they are built to last a lifetime and deliver when it comes to safety, quality, and design.

    German tin toys were innovative and well made and they dominated the market up to the outbreak of World War II. Once the toy industry was (back) in full production, assumed the lead and began to control the market with the addition of many new novelties. Not just wind-up and friction driven, some Japanese tin toys were powered by batteries and able to provide flashing lights and sounds. In the 1950's and early 1960's, the Japanese had flooded the market with many appealingly designed tin toys and a large percentage of them were aimed at the USA with items familiar to Americans. But despite tin toy popularity in the post-war era, tin toy manufacturing was faced with increasing difficulties. They included changing consumer demands, new safety regulations and competition from plastic toy makers. By the 1970's, Japan had reduced the tin toy output so dramatically that many factories had ceased production altogether.

Cars and such: Vintage German Toys - Wooden Animal Miniatures.

WILLIAMSBURG, VA – In today’s world of advertising, what you see in a mail order or a sales rep’s catalogue is usually what you get. In the nineteenth century, however, ordering toys to be sold in an American store meant perusing 200-page, hardcover “catalogues” filled with hand-colored engraved images of more than 2,400 toys that were hand-crafted in Germany—the so-called Toy Center of the World—specifically for an American audience. A rare example of such a catalogue from the 1840s along with approximately 50 toys from the Colonial Williamsburg collections that directly relate to it is the basis for a new exhibition, German Toys in America, which will open on October 29, 2016, at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, one of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. The exhibition, the first major show focused on these wooden and papier maché toys, will be on view through August 2018.
