M. Gropper and Sons

by Richard Mueller Jr.

M. Gropper & Sons
Brooklyn, New York

M. Gropper & Sons was a toy maker who made a large variety of wooden paper litho toys. A catalog produced by them identified them as having their office and factory in the Bush Terminal Building #6 in Brooklyn, N. Y. Their catalog pictures 14 toy autos (non pull toys) including a Gravel Auto, a Grocery Auto, Doll's Auto Ambulance, and a Moving Van Auto. This helps to identify the M. Gropper & Sons catalog as being from the mid 1920's.

The pull toys made by M. Gropper are often confused as being made by Gibbs or Converse. See the chapter on Gibbs for similar toys. M. Gropper toys were found in Sears catalogs in 1918, but no toys were in the Sears 1927 catalog.

None of the listed toys have an M. Gropper & Sons logo, and we are unsure if there was a logo for their toys or not.
