Marx Tin Barns


Happi-Time Platform Barn Pedigree Farms

 


Do you remember these?  Farm toys like these tin play sets bring back many fun memories of playing as a kid.   The Happi-Tim Platform Barn Set originally had 220 pieces and cost $9.77, now it is worth over $200! This set was offered in the early 1950's from the Sears Catalog.  


The Pedigree Farms Tin Barn is a Canadian-made barn originally costing $7.98 and is now worth over $300.  Check out the complete collection on loan from the collection of Roger Ritt.
