Scooter Girl Windup | Collectible Toy
Scooter Girl Wind-Up Lithographed Collectible Tin Toy.
Every Tin Treasure starts with a flat sheet of metal, which is printed and then cut into separate pieces. Each piece is then formed into the final shape by passing through numerous tooling stations until the final shape is achieved. The pieces are then hand assembled to create a single finished toy.
Being a very labour intensive process, tin toy production was quickly abandoned when plastic moulding was developed. Most tradtional toy makers in India, like elsewhere in the world, moved away from tin toy production, thus leaving only a handful of factories that still produce them.
Today, people from around the world seek tin toys, either as serious collectors or merely to cherish the memories of thier childhood.
