Cast iron toys are the sort of toy which these days wouldn't even approach meeting toy safety standards! Nevertheless, they are still wonderful-looking items and highly representative of their eras, and this book is a very attractive and enjoyable introduction to their world. The toys are segregated by type and brand, and there are plenty of great pictures, along with some informative text. As usual, there's a value guide which is likely a little out of date by now.
