Fisher Price Easter Carts

Coming up this month will be vintage Fisher Price Easter Carts & Toys. Starting in 1936, Fisher Price began selling an Easter toy line to keep production and momentum going all year round. Many of Fisher Price's earliest Donald Duck toys were actually Easter releases, as the duck was a seasonally appropriate theme. Fisher Price also created what it referred to as "Easter carts," a wide variety of pull toys with an open truck bed, train car, or cart area that could be filled with Easter grass and candies and used as a child's Easter basket. These toys were all made of lithographed paper over wood, and many incorporated movement and sound effects into their design. Stay 'tooned...

...and have a Happy Easter!
