The Ted Toy-lers List
 and
Company Information
by Jim Sneed

This is a current list of Ted Toys that I have been able to identify through newspaper articles, magazine ads, catalogs, and from collections. This list will be updated as I find new pieces.  Please contact me if you can add items. Toys marked International Toys were produced in 1929, and possibly 1928 and 1930.
