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 which were famous for manufacturing various carts and wagons with cartoon characters of 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 it is often hard to distinguish between their products. In 1913, financial difficulties forced them out of toy production.
