SCHOENHUT TOYS 1926
Made in U.S.A. since 1872 - American ingenuity and invention
For more than half a century, Santa Claus has made the Schoenhut factory in Philadelphia his headquarters. During all those years Schoenhut's American-made toys have been known as strong, durable toys that educate the child as well as amuse. The better stores all sell Schoenhut Toys. It will pay you to look for the name "Schoenhut" on the toys you buy for Christmas.
Humpty Dumpty Circus
Many of the children who got Schoenhut's Humpty Dumpty Circus Toys when they were first produced are parents now, and on Christmas morning they will get a new thrill as they watch their own little children put the clowns and animals through their tricks again. Here is a toy that encourages the natural child instinct to create and develop something new and different. Sets cost from $1 to $35, depending on the number of pieces. If your store doesn't sell them, send for a price list and we will send you the toys direct.
"Schoenhut" Toy Pianos
This is the fifty-fourth year of continuous and increasing sales of these wonderful toy pianos. When buying a Toy Piano be sure the name "Schoenhut" appears on the front of the Piano; any other name appearing designates that it is not a "Schoenhut."
"Schoenhut" Toy Pianos are far more than toys; they teach a love of music from the time a tot can strike a key.
The keys in the keyboard are spaced accurately the same as in a big piano. Each "Schoenhut" Toy Piano is correctly tuned, and will never get out of tune.
You can get genuine "Schoenhut" Toy Pianos from 50c to $35.00 each. A very popular and fine "Schoenhut" Upright or Baby Grand Toy Piano is sold for $5.00—it has eighteen keys and is finished very handsomely. If your dealer cannot provide you with "Schoenhut" Toy Pianos, write direct to us.
Unique A-B-C Blocks
While playing with these blocks, lithographed on one side with animals, on the other side with cunning children, the small child is unconsciously learning the alphabet. These are ideal blocks for spelling, building, etc., even ten pins can be played; several rubber balls with each set.
"Schoenhut" All-Wood Dolls are practically unbreakable—considering their long life they are most reasonable in cost. They are painted with permanent enamel oil colors. Finest quality mohair wigs, or hair carved and painted on the wooden heads. Eyes movable or fixed. We also make "Mama" dolls, with stuffed soft bodies and hollow wooden heads—durable fine dolls. Ask your dealer for "Schoenhut" Dolls—if he does not have them, write us for illustrated price list; we will ship direct to you.
