Vintage toys

A long time ago my brother Clas posted a few images of old vintage tin toys from manufacturer Schuco. I was struck by the extreme charm of the toys and their typography.

I asked Clas for a bunch of closeups and additional pictures.

There are some tiny details on them that I love;

  • «Made in the U.S.-Zone of Germany»
  • The horn of the Schuco-Akustico 2002 sounds «Hup, hup, hup, hup, hup»
  • The hand painted «Command» on the jeeps hubcap.
  • The Dunlop tires on the Tippco mc.
