Place of Origin

Maker Hubley Manufacturing Company

Maker Details The Hubley Manufacturing Company produced a wide range of cast-iron toys, doorstops, and bookends. Toys, particularly motor vehicles, were also produced in zinc alloy and plastic. The company is probably most well known for its detailed 1:25 scale metal kits of 1930s cars. For a time, Hubley participated with Detroit automakers as a plastic promotional model maker. Many Hubley toys are now sought-after collectibles.
