Maker Hubley Kiddie Toy

Maker Details The Hubley Manufacturing Company was first incorporated in 1894 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania by John Hubley. The first Hubley toys appeared in 1909 and were made of cast-iron, with styles that ranged from horse-drawn vehicles and different breeds of dogs, to tractors and guns. Hubley's series of motorcycles were also creative and included sidecars and ones hooked to delivery vans that said, "Say it with flowers" on the sides. Starting around 1940, the company shifted to diecast zinc alloy molding. Household objects such as doorstops and bookends were also produced. Automobiles, trucks and airplanes later became Hubley's main focus.
