American Alloy / Toy Creation / American Lead Toy & Novelty Co.
American Alloy / Toy Creation may have had it's beginnings as American Lead Toy & Novelty Co. in the late 1930's, producing hollowcast lead copies of some of the early Barclay line, which Barclay had long abandoned, possibly buying the moulds from them. Not long after, they started producing hollowcast lead-zinc alloy soldiers as American Alloy, somewhere along the line changing to Toy Creation. Their early figures are copies of Barclay and Tommy Toy, though not often sculpted or painted very well and cast with a brittle lead-zinc alloy. After WW2 Toy Creation briefly produced a new line of hollowcast lead-zinc alloy toy soldiers with WW2 helmets. These soldiers were original, but the paint was of inferior quality and they still used the brittle lead-zinc alloy, finding them un-broken or un-repaired is a challenge. By the late 1940's Toy Creation had disappeared.
