Vintage1940's rusty red metal Junior Toy Co. tricycle from JunqueGypsy.Etsy.com

Rare trike made in the 1930-40's in Hammond, Indiana, by the Junior Toy Company.

Approx measures: 16" tall, 14" wide at back tires, 15" handlebar span.
Rusty red metal, squeaky wheels. Best used as a prop rather than for actual riding by a child as tires are lopsided. Great patina. Well loved toy left from simpler times.

Company History: Junior Toy Company began in the 1920's in Hammond, Indiana. During the depression, the company focused its efforts solely on the production of toys - most notably, velocipedes. The demand for these toys, even in a time of economic collapse, was huge and allowed the company to become one of Hammond's biggest industries. The success of the company allowed them to quickly expand into a 24 hour operation.
The move to producing only toys doubled the company's sales allowing the company to expand and change locations. Junior produced each and every toy part inside their Hammond facility.
The company's streamline tricycles, such as the Sky King model, are some of the most sought after tricycles today. Some of these early tricycles from the 30's are valued at over $2000.
