Tin Treasures

Home / Tin Treasures

Every Tin Treasure starts out as a flat sheet of metal that is printed and then cut into separate pieces. Each piece is then formed into it’s final shape through numerous tooling stations. The pieces are then hand assembled to create the final toy.

A labour-intensive process, Tin Toy production was quickly abandoned when plastic moulding was developed. Most traditional toy makers in India, like elsewhere in the world, moved away from Tin Toy production. Today, people from all over the world seek Tin Toys, either as serious collectors or merely to cherish the rich memories of their childhood. Anyone intending to start or enlarge a collection should not delay!
