WWII Wooden Toys


Photo Gallery of WWII Wooden Toys

During WWII, many toy companies, particularly those who made metal toys like Lionel, ceased making toys and instead made war material. Some wooden toy makers continued making toys but with restrictions on their use of metal which was a designated strategic material. This page is dedicated to these toys.

This page under construction. I need photos of WWII wooden toys.
