Bumpa Toys

by Richard Mueller Jr.

Bumpa Toys
Manufactured by Milton Bradley Co.
Springfield, Massachusetts
1930 - Estimated 1932

In 1930, Milton Bradley introduced a new line of die-cut fibre toy novelties called Bumpa Toys. Most of these toys were designed to sell to toy departments, gift shops and novelty stores to be filled with candy and toys to resell. It was advertised that all Bumpa Toys are action toys. These brightly colored toys retailed from ten to fifty cents apiece. Because of their eight ply cardboard construction, moisture causes deterioration which makes them hard to find in excellent condition.

Bumpa Toys and Trixy Toys used very similar construction, but both companies often printed their names on the toy. To determine the maker of toys that do not carry the company name, we used trade ads and, in some cases, our best judgment to determine which company manufactured the toy.
