Towner Toys

by Richard Mueller Jr.

Towner Toys
Portand, Oregon
1946 – Estimated 1960’s

Towner Toys advertised their toys as being “good wood toys” with “action-color-sound.” We were not able to find abundant information about Towner Toys. What we do know, is that the company was run by Mr. and Mrs. Towner Phillips. Towner Toys have unique designs and materials. Most of their toys were designed for smaller children.
