Baby Haymaker Marx Style Farm Toy for Sale
Baby Haymaker Marx Style Farm Toy For Sale
This toy deserves to be rescued and was an extremely tough toy to research. It comes from a smaller New York maker, Animate Toys, and the maker’s work tended to not survive.
Our best estimate places this in the late 1920s. Tin smithing is primitive and we get a very early fluid/spring dampener in the rear tractor axle. This was also used in early 1915 era toys by the same company. You are supposed to pull back the toy and then release the dampened spring energy. At this point it barely works because the oil is gummed up.
Condition is used. The box is restored with a box liner but survives. The art is great and look is very much like a Marx toy. The tractor’s hitch is replaced. One hay set of rakes/cutters is missing. Otherwise we have a great toy for playing with or display. We have not seen another boxed example offered in one 20 years, so it is extremely rare.
