Z310

Cool Victorian puzzle by Milton, Bradley & Co.  Nice original color lithographed label reads, “THE SMASHED UP LOCOMOTIVE/ A MECHANICAL PUZZLE FOR BOYS.” Interesting gender specific 19th century toy. Train puzzles were definitely for boys, not girls. The only resemblance to a smashed up train is that the train is in (puzzle) pieces. It’s a bit of a stretch, but as with modern toys, the toy doesn’t quite live up to the label.  Despite some missing pieces, it’s still a great looking box.

 

Date:  Last quarter of the 19th century.
