WWII WOODEN TOY - A.I. ROOT CO. - STEAM SHOVEL - MEDINA, OHIO - 1940s - VINTAGE
This auction is for a one of a kind antique wooden toy construction kit, produced in Medina, Ohio, USA by THE A.I. ROOT COMPANY. I have found no date on the box/toy/instruction sheet, however, it is from the World War II era (1940’s or early 50’s). The original box, complete wooden kit and instructions are in very good to excellent condition. The colors are still extremely bright with minimal fading/scuffs near left text and near the boy’s eye/cheek. The left side corners of the box are split (taped by a previous owner).
