United Toy Manufacturers


United Toy Manufacturers of St. Louis, Missouri started making toys in 1919 according to one of their catalogs. In the early 1920s, the company claimed to be the world's fastest growing toy maker, but by 1926 they were not advertising in major toy publications so may have been out of business. They made a line of wooden riding toys, wagons, shooflies, pull toys, and whirl-a-gig toys. They made the then famous Walk-O-Toy line.
