Many companies ramped up manufacturing of indestructible pressed steel toys shortly after WWII. Millions of baby-boomer generation kids played with solid steel toys were manufactured that way right up into the 1980s. Eventually, steel gave way to plastic and today most toys are entirely plastic.
The inspiration behind our 1950s Tin Toy Future Car
I grew up playing with lots of metal toys. Back then I loved them for their indestructibility. Today I love them as works of art. Their craftsmanship and nostalgia are hard to resist.
Collecting toys is no longer just for kids. In fact, vintage pressed steel toys like this 1950s tin toy future car is a prized-find for many collectors. This print will make a great addition to any collector of vintage-inspired art.
