Dolls from Germany

Nuremberg (Bavaria), had become the historic center of the toy industry many years before the word 'toy' came to be used to describe children's playthings.

It was possible Nuremberg's pewter trade which founded the tinplate toy industry for which the town was to become eventually renowned. Soon Nuremberg products were pouring out of Germany and flooding the markets of the world. Other local firms joined in, making Germany the toy supplier of the world.

German products generally began to upset world economy in a similar way to today's domination of world markets by Japan. Commercial toy making in other countries began as a planned response to check German imports.
