Antique Tin Toys
Apart from collecting the odd tin usually toffee or chocolate type,and of course my BEANO BOY TIN,i have no tin type toy of any period what`s so ever. On a shelf they would lend a certain bygone age theme to any wall within the home. They are not cheap things to buy,and a few would be nice,but the walls in our little Fiddle Wood place are to put no finer point to it,quite full up already.
However it cost nothing to look at a few pictures, and i have included the tin toy tin spinning top because millions of people world wide can remember buying that special item tin toy for their young children to spin out a playful amusement with it`s pump action driver handle creating that distinct whirring sound that i`m sure many can remember. And so it begins with wind up tin toys and finishes with it could be said wound down ones.
A wonky little driver i would say. imagine a table full of these things going round and around

i love the Pecker-wood, woodpecker!
The look of a converted dog bowl!
Those legs would certainly dance a jig and well match the waddle of that Duck.

One has to show a truck.
Broooom! Broooom! The roadway Speed Cop

These are of course seen as a dangerous toys now because if the handle is pulled off it reveals a nasty twisted metal shaft of an impaling skewer !
