Retro tin toys but without the sharp edges

Tin toys were originally made as a cheaper alternative to wooden toys and were popular until we started mass producing plastic toys in the 70's. Tin toys were often quirky with bright colours and patterns that appealed to children. These are the toys which are remembered by the grandads and great grandads of today with nostalgic memories of wind up mechanisms.

Reproductions of these old tin toys are still being made today and we stock a range of collectible tin robots, planes and other tin toys. Unfortunately these tin toys are only suitable for collectors and are not intend for children as they do not meet the current toy legislation. This is why we were so excited when we discovered a range of tin toys from Schylling that carry the CE mark and are suitable for children from the age of 3 years. Now grandparents can give their grandchildren a tin toy they remember.
