Schoenhut Reproductions
Often, Humpty Dumpty circus items are offered for sale or at auction that were not made by the original Schoenhut Company of Philadelphia. We have even seen Schoenhut copies made in China - pretty bad looking stuff! However, the Delavan Company of Seneca Falls, New York obtained the rights to produce the Humpty Dumpty circus and did so between 1950 and 1952. To see photos of this reproduction circus and others, go to Schoenhut Reproductions.
Schoenhut Non-Circus Toys
The A. Schoenhut made many toys other than its famous circus over its years of production. We are compiling a list of these toys with descriptions. Click here.
O. Schoenhut
We are compiling information about the O. Schoenhut company who made toys starting in the late 1930s. See where we are here.
