NOTE 26/11/2021 - Apologies to those who have left comments or questions recently. For some reason these have not been passed on to my email for a while.


NEW INFORMATION - 01/01/2022.

Original Tin Toy Company Sales Brochures And Catalogues.

New Strategy - Rather than uploading digital copies of various rare tin toy catalogues to the galleries attached to this blog (a time consuming task which I will never get around to) I'm reworking them into downloadable pdf files. The files, which you can view on your own computer, can be purchased from my online shop for a nominal fee (under $5.00 / £5.00). I hope collectors find this service useful. Please do not copy or redistribute these files or there will be very little incentive to invest the time it takes to add more catalogues to the list below. 

Links are to my online store. Have a look at the various vintage toys I have on offer while you are there!

Available so far:-

Coming Soon:-

  • Mettoy Catalogue for 1952.
  • Mettoy Catalogue for 1963.
  • Marx Catalogue for 1970.
  • Masudaya Catalogue for 1964.
  • Yonezawa Catalogue for 1966.
  • Plus many others including Aoshin, Daiya, Haji, TPS, Yanoman, Yoshiya, Ichimura, Takatoku, Fuji, Sutcliffe etc.

N.B. Google change from Picassa to Google Photos has caused most of the links to pictures in this blog to be broken. I'm gradually correcting them as and when I get time. It's a long job which has delayed the addition of new information I'm afraid! (03/05/2017).

Update - Most links now corrected.

AOSHIN CO., LTD. / AOSHIN SHOTEN CO., LTD.

Company Name/s: Aoshi Co., Ltd. / Aoshin Shoten Co., Ltd.
Name Derivation / Meaning: Unknown. Does not appear to be a family name.
Location/s: Unknown, Japan.


Trade Mark/s: Toys are found with either the word "Aoshin" within an oval or the letters "ASC", within a diamond / lozenge (Aoshin Shoten Company). Toys occur with both the ASC trade mark and the ST (safety toy mark introduced 1971) so it's likely that the ASC trade mark is the later one.
Dates: Unknown.
Notes: In addition to the usual run of tin toys, vehicles, novelty toys etc., the company produced/distributed a number of TV and film related tin toy vehicles and other toys. These include Batman, The Monkees, James Bond 007, Thunderbirds and Green Hornet. The company seems to have moved on to the production of diecast toys in the 1970's.

CHINESE TIN TOYS

Basic List And Origins Where Known.

There seems to be very little information available on Chinese tin toys. This is, initially, just an attempt to track down all the numbers and names of the toys produced in China. Many Chinese toys are original designs, others are copies or probably 're-manufactures' made using, mainly,  Japanese machinery. With re-manufactures the metal pressing will be identical but usually the lithography will be entirely different.
