Kansas City's Antiques & Collectibles Show ~ August 2008 ~ Part 2

Here are some shots from the Toy/Doll section of the show last weekend ~ quite a variety of great tin and cast iron toys! While I don't actively collect tin toys ~ they can get pretty pricey, I still find them interesting to look at ~ the graphics are wonderfully executed and the concept and/or mechanism of the toy is usually unique as well.

I do love these little scottie toys {of course!} The one on the left is called "the Wee Scot" ~ I wasn't able to get a very good shot of him ~ his little jacket sports the name, but is not visible on this photo. He has a rubber tail and ears with a tin body ~ he comes in several sizes. The scottie on the right is also a windup ~ I gather that when wound he must shake that shoe.
