Toy Guitar
« on: March 15, 2010, 07:23:07 AM »
Hi, I bought this a while ago - and you can see that it is fairly small (see spoon in pix).  It is red and yellow and has some Western motifs on it.  I can find no marks on it at all - mind you - I am going to hunt around a bit more.  Obviously, a toy made of Plastic.

Any help?

Thanks Anne, will take a look.

I also took a closer look for any marks on it and DID find a mark.  It says:

RELIABLE PLASTIC - CANADA

I found a little bit of info here about Reliable Plastic (but info was on a Doll) but still some info

Scroll down to about the HALF WAY mark here.  A toy guitar (Davy Crockett) made by Reliable too.

So using that bit of info -- this toy guitar must too be from around the late 1950's era - I would guess

I'd agree datewise, Rose - late 50s/early 60s. I recall seeing guitars like these (but with different decor) when I was a child. :)

I can see you Anne as a child playing one ----> :rocker: lol

Yes, I think several companies made them with different logo on them.  Eg. Beatles, Roy Rogers, Davy Crockett .....etc.  Even just the colors of it reminds me of my *childhood* Ann.
