Photo of Tour Jeep Navigating the Chimney Rock Jeep Trail on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Started as a private endeavor, Chimney Rock was a tourist attraction for most of the 20th Century (more history here). In 1963 a Jeep Trail was added to the Chimney Rock and a tour jeep began ferrying tour groups up the mountain. The tour company had three modified CJ-6 tour jeeps. This photo was likely taken between 1963 and 1977, when the jeep trail became a walking trail. In 2006 Chimney Rock became a North Carolina State Park.

The photo below was taken from the website, but no longer appears on the history page itself.

Wannatoy Wagons by Dillon Beck Manufacturing

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

UPDATE II: I managed to track down all four colors of wagons on eBay.

wanna-toys-wagons-lores

The four known colors of the Wannatoy Wagons by Dillon Beck Mfg.

=====================

UPDATE Posted July 2020:  It turns out that I I had “Wanna Toy” as two separate words, but the brand name is actually “Wannatoy”. 

From Chriscollectibles.com: Wannatoy, the trademark of Dillon Beck Manufacturing Co., produced toys made of acetate plastic.  Based in New Jersey, they manufactured numerous toy vehicles (as well as doll house furniture, pot and pan sets and possibly other toys) after the end of WWII through the late 1950s.

From “O’Brien’s Collecting Toy Cars & Trucks” book, 1990, “Wannatoy was among the first toy makers off the starting block at the end of World War II. Of the millions of children born during the war, and the millions more who arrived soon afterward, a good percentage played with Wannatoys.

What seems to have been the company’s first offering, the twenty-five-cent futurist Coupe, was a hit toy for Christmas of 1945, selling a million units that season. With streamlined, Deco-influenced body and bible top, the Couple continued to sell well into the 1950s.”

Here’s an ad (thanks to Andy) from 1952 (available on eBay). The ad suggests there were only three colors of wagons, but doesn’t indicate what those were. So far, I’ve identified four colors (red, green, blue, purple … see them at the bottom of this post).

1952-03-toys-and-novelties-mag-wanna-toys2

And this is an example of the packaging. The company targeted both girl and boys:

wannatoy-packaging

And this is an example of a display box (available with toys on eBay):

wannatoy-boy-display

And now for the wagons …Here’s a photo of a blue wagon I just picked up.

And, this is an example of a (florescent looking) green wagon that I hope to acquire in a few days:
