Place of Origin

Maker All Metal Products Company

Maker Details Wyandotte, or All Metal Products, was a pressed metal toy factory that made cars, trucks, pop guns and other metal toys from 1920 to 1957. Using less expensive scrap metal from the auto industry, they made high quality mass produced metal toys. All Metal Products began producing Wyandotte trucks and cars, getting the name because they were made in Wyandotte Michigan. They moved in the 1950s to Ohio getting them closer to their source of scrap metal, and also cheaper labor. Atempts to salvage the company in 1957 failed. Ultimately that strategy did not work out, they went bankrupt, and were purchased by one of their competitors, Louis Marx and Company.
