I'm currently working on a new series of circus-themed toy dolls, games and pullalong toys so my workshop this time is a set of four vintage lithograph style pullalong toys.
The invention of chromolithography (colour printing on paper) in the 19th century, opened up a whole world of possibilities and heralded a new way to produce children’s toys and games. The undisputed ‘Kings of Chromolithography’ were the McLoughlin Brothers of New York, whose beautiful games, books and toys were a joy to behold.
My set of circus pullalongs is inspired by the wonderful lithograph printed toys of the late 19th century and features four precision cut, double-sided animals - elephant, zebra, giraffe and camel, each standing on a colourfully decorated wooden base with fixed wheels and silk cord pull.
|Perfect for a 1/12th scale nursery, playroom or toy shop|
|Evocative of the lithographed toys of the late 19th century|
|The giraffe is 1 1/12" tall|
|Only slightly taller than a thimble!|
The workshop pack contains all the materials you need to complete these toys, including a step-by-step fully illustrated instruction booklet. You only need scissors and glue!
