Firefighting Toys 1940s 1990s Book Description:

What child hasn't dreamed of a big red fire engine under the Christmas tree or been fascinated by the sights and sounds of firefighters hustling off to a fire? The desire of children to be close to firefighters has kept toy manufacturers busy over many decades making fire-themed toys that filled children with wonder. As adults, those same children delight in collecting the colorful and exciting toys that so enriched their early years. Presented here, in nearly 600 color photos, are the best and most highly collected firefighting toys from the second half of the twentieth century. Fire engines, fire chiefs' cars, firehouses, fireboats, firemen -- if it has the word "fire" in it, you're sure to find it here! Organized alphabetically by manufacturer, the comprehensive lineup includes toys from Buddy L, Corgi, Fisher-Price, Hubley, Keystone, Marx, Mattel, Nylint, Remco, Structo, Tonka, Tootsietoy, and many more. Also featured are tips on what to collect, places to find firefighting toys, detailed descriptions, and up-to-date pricing information. A treat for "grown up" children everywhere!
