Description

A Wyandotte Hoky Poky pressed tin railroad clown car clockwork toy. A great collectible mid-century tin toy featuring two identical clowns. The toy has clockwork functionality and travels a number of feet on a smooth, flat surface.

Founded in 1920, the All Metal Products Company was based in Wyandotte, Michigan for most of its history. It produced inexpensive pressed metal toys under the Wyandotte brand name, and interestingly was the largest manufacturer of toy guns in the US for several decades in the 20th century. The company declared bankruptcy in 1956. As many of the Wyandotte toys were manufactured using metal many survive to this day and furthermore are highly sought after collectibles.
