My Vintage Hard Plastic Easter Toys Candy Container Collection

Vintage Easter Toys and Collectibles

  I've been collecting Easter toys, candy containers, and other items for a few years now. They are just so cute! A few years ago, I did a display of part of my collection at our local library.

Here are a few shots of the display cases.

As you enter the library, there are 2 glass showcases flanking the entryway. The glass made the photos difficult to take, but I think you can get the idea of how my little treasures look.


Some of the companies that made these types of hard plastic toys were: ROSBRO, ROSEN, IRWIN, KNICKERBOCKER, UNION -- here's a good starter book --http://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Novelties-Toys-Schiffer-Collectors/dp/0764314408
