A brief history of the Harris Toy Company of Toledo, Ohio:

1887 – 1913

Founder: Franklin Harrison Harris

Specialty: Produced malleable cast-iron and steel toys in the 1880s. It became one of the top manufacturers of cast iron toys and was famous for manufacturing various carts and wagons with cartoon characters of the time such as Gloomy Gus, Happy Hooligan, and Foxy Grandpa standing in them. Harris also acted as a jobber for Dent, Hubley, and Wilkins which is often hard to distinguish between their products. In 1913, financial difficulties forced them out of toy production.
