Children’s Tin Globe Toy by Replogle – 1952

October 9, 2009

This is a rare example of a childrens tin globe by Replogle Globes circa 1952.   Replogle began manufacturing these  in the 1950’s in an effort to compete with other childrens tin globe manufactures such as J.Chien and Ohio Art.   The manufacturing of these toys ceased soon after.  Replogle still manufactures globes in Chicago today.
