Fantastic noise makers from the 1960's made in the USA by Kirchhof.
The large witch is a rattle type and the other is a ratchet style.
Both work great, in spite of a few minor dings.


Specialty: Small metal toys, noisemakers, Christmas ornaments and novelties. Kirchhof essentially was a developer of patents and in addition to toys produced Braille printers and ticker-tape machines. (Although no longer in business under the name Kirchhof, the company did undergo a lot of changes in ownership through out the years and was still recorded as being active up to the 1950s.)

They were manufacturers of (first) Christmas tree candle holders, and then began manufacturing noisemakers. They were believed to have manufactured the crickets (clickers) used by the soldiers at the landing of Normandy during W.W.II. Kirchhof held some of the first patents for the Christmas tree candle holders, and also held a patent (1867) on the 'return-wheel', which was dropped and later became the yo-yo.
