The Cavalry Rider

This patriotic toy was made according to instructions given by the painter Gericault after his famous painting: Cavalry officer of the Imperial Guard...

Rusty

Always fond of lipsticks or blusher, Rusty was put onto the market under the nickname: "The Guardian Angel". Unfortunately, due to her tendency of preferring leisure to duty she has been renamed.

______________________________________________________

Zack the Crack

We owe this paradoxical, but disciplined puppet to the talents of the famous sculptor Gepetto. Legend has it that later...

St. Louis' Choochoo

This mechanical train, a marvel of precision, has been given to Herbert Remington, President of the Pacific Coast Railway, for the occasion of the Promontory Points junction.

______________________________________________________

Hop-o'-My-Thumb

His seven mile boots make him march in time. Alas, this toy has sold so badly, that there are only a few especimens left. Indeed "Grimminality" doesn't pay.

The Spirit of San José

This little plane, constructed by Shuster Inc., is a miniature copy of the first monoplane that flew from New York to Los Angeles in 1919.

______________________________________________________

Blondie

Always vain, this doll from Nuremberg was a joy for thousands of children. Due to her real hair, it's a piece that any collector would be happy to own.

______________________________________________________

Indrani from Bali

This dancing princess of the Temple of Shiva enjoyed an enormous success in India last century. Brought to the West by Kipling whose fame spread as fast as an oil slick.

______________________________________________________

Jack in the Dark

The Irish craftsman who designed this toy drew his inspiration from the infamous pirate One Eyed Jack. It seems that only candy can calm his anger.

- One Eyed Jack -

...Once upon a time, there was a jack-in-the-box whose name was One Eyed Jack. He was so ugly and mean, that after terrorizing the toys that march in time to a drum, he took the nicest man in the world prisoner: Father Christmas.

______________________________________________________

Only a Witch, even if it's not a professional one, will be able to release him. However, scaring the greedy "One Eyed Jack in the Box" could be easy, if you've only got what it takes to reflect.
