I Structural and building toys seem
to occupy a rather important light.
One of the newest innovations of thi
sort is a mechanical automobile. The
machine is demountable Packed, the
wheels are off. the springs arc not in
place! The body needs assembling,
and in fact, the toy resembles an au
tomobile which ha:; been tern down.
An ingeniously devised arrangement
enables the possessor of the toy to as
semble the machine and in assembling
J the machine, he learns all the com-
. ponent parts of an automobile aside
from the workings of the gas engine
The prasollne engine is replaced by an
engine operated by a spring In the toy
American toys of the mechanical na
lure will never be surpassed by toys J
from any other country in the world,
is the opinion of Ogden toy buyers. No
country now in the toy business can
hope to compete wtih the American
toy manufacturers in pertccting minia
ture mechanical wonders.
Tho shops are filled with toys which,
have been constructed so that they:
clearly illustrate some law of physics j
Others are mere brain twisters, es
pecially designed to make one dizzy..
A saleslady at one of the stores that
I visited yesterday approached me andj
said: "Have you seen our new cootie!
game?" And she thrust under myj
nose a box about four inches square,
and an inch deep, with a glass cover j
Gyrating and squirming beneath the
glass cover were four multi-colored!
capsules that seemed endowed with I
life A tilt of the box and the "coo i
ties" swarmed all over their corral.
The object of the game was to herd
the "cooties" into a small pen re

closure. They certainly have to be eacle-cyed
in the various toy departments, espe
cially in the departments where the
toys are on low tables and arc of not
I sufficient weight or bulk to insure
their safety from jifvcnilo hands.
WANT THEM ALL.
Youngsters accompanying mothers
In the toylands have absolutely no
sense of ownership, that is to say, no
sense of anyone else's ownership.
Yesterday I saw a boy of about I
years old dragging a rocking horse.
His mother was dragging him in an
effort to separate him from his new
found pet. She finally bough' the horse
ami then he wanted to brinsr it with
him. He's now probably await ins; San
ta's arrival wit.i his horse.
On the same visit three youngsters
about 6 years old were admirinc the
contents of the hop. Their enthusi
asm on the subject seemed Irrepressi
ble. Fully su: clerks tried to suppress
their ecstacics and finally succeeded
by loading the trio, intoxicated with'
Christmas spirit, into an elevator.
Some of the clerks complr:in merely
becauso school children of lender
years, oh say about 7 or 8, come to the
stores merely to try out certain types
of vehicles known as "scooters." i
' Irish Mails" and so on. Just because
some of the boys run the boy-power
conveyances into a saleslady s shins,
some of the attendants become exceed
ingly wroth. The kids complain that

But reverting to the topic of tov
! manufacturing. Japan Is specializing
In heavy wooden toys such as grinning
rotund dragons. with protruding
! tongue and grotesquely nodding head
The Japanese arc embodying a num
ber of clever ideas in the manufacture
of toys of this sort, it is claimed, but
in their manufacture of mechanical
toys, are falling far below the stand-j
ard of American made toys.
Japanese dolls although they show
superiority in many respects over the
American product, are not difficult to
distinguish Peculiar formation of the!
features of the dolls, particularly no-'
ticeable in the lines of the mouth andj
eyes, mark these dolls as the product)
of an oriental race.
The German dolls are said by som"!
tc have bv far the best features and
coloring. America leads the world in i
novelty doll manufacturing. There
still exists a great demand for Kew
pies and similarly designed darlings
for little ladies. 1
Notwithstanding the fact that hun
dreds of disabled American service j i
men have taken up toy making as their :
life work, no appreciable quantity of i

Many families instead of giving each other smaller gifts
have united to give themselves the queen of gifts, the

the market. Local dealers assort, how
ever, that when the disabled men or
ganize and equip themselves so that

facturing of toys, that other manufac
turers may feci the effects of the new
arrivals in the toy industry.
