YONEYA TOYS CO. / SY TOYS CO. / 'YONE'

Company Name/s: S.Y. Toys Co. Ltd. / Yoneya Toys Co., Ltd.
Name Derivation / Meaning: Yoneya is a Japanese family / surname.
Location/s: No. 4-7.2-Chome, Misuji, Taito Ku, Tokyo, Japan.
Trade Mark/s:



Dates: Founded in 1950. Dissolved - not known. 
Notes: Early catalogues and brochures give the anglicised name of this company as S.Y. Toys Co. Ltd. At some point in the 1960's this appears to have changed to Yoneya Toys Co., Ltd. This may have occurred at the same time as the trade mark changed but I can't confirm it at this point. You will commonly find the company referred to as Yone in references and within online auction listings. As far as I know this abbreviation was only ever used on the later trade mark and never as part of a company name. Yoneya is often confused with the Yonezawa toy company because of the similar sounding names. You may also find toys from other companies that use a Y within their trade mark i.e. Sanko (Y within a circle), Yoshi (Y within a diamond) miss-labelled as Yone (Yoneya).

History & Development



Louis Marx Bagatelle U.S. Patent 1953 (1)

Louis Marx Bagatelle U.S. Patent 1953 (2)



Boxes
Most, if not all, Marx bagatelle games seem to have been supplied in boxes.
Early boxes. Early boxes enclose the game and often have an artistic representation of the game on the upper surface.
Playline boxes. The phrase Play-Line was trade marked, in the USA, by Marx in late 1965 for their pinball/bagatelle games. Many bagatelle games were subsequently supplied in rather dull, generic boxes with an open window, displaying the actual game. They also feature the phrase Play-Line. These clearly saved the company money and made the games more profitable.

IMAGE GALLERY'S ASSOCIATED WITH THE BLOG.

GOOGLE+ / PICASSA Gallery - When I started this blog a couple of years ago I also began adding images to what was then known as Picassa. It's a very useful gallery in that I can add in pictures of trade marks and photographs of toys as I produce them. They can be continuously rearranged as more pictures are added. If you browse these galleries you will find that, as far as possible, I've arranged companies in order of the country in which they are based. Within countries companies are arranged alphabetically, the first image being of a company's trade mark, subsequent photographs being of example toys. You can change the settings on the gallery to suit you own preferences, zoom in, show as a slide show etc. (personally I find the old Picassa view option with titles beneath each image most useful). You will find links to these galleries at the side of each blog page as well as within the entries for the many companies and toys listed within my company indexes.

Please note that at the time of this post I have split the original single gallery into three more manageable categories. These are:- 


This arrangement will almost certainly change in the future with a separate gallery for German manufacturers and so on. The Japan gallery, like the index of manufacturers, is the best developed at the moment but the others should grow substantially in the near future.
