FAMILY TOY TALK
A PEACE CHRISTMAS
-the first real one since before the World War!
AMERICA has played a proud part in the war. We all know of her wonderful armies of sturdy manhood-alert and keen. We all know of wonderful inventions-of huge sums of money given freely-of that love of our flag and Country which made success for our Allies and ourselves possible.
New fields of industry were opened, because we were shut off from European markets. There was no other way but to manufacture things for ourselves since we could not import or buy elsewhere.
What would have happened to the joy of Christmas, had not American brains and American hands turned to and made toys for our boys and girls? For years and years Germany, and more recently Japan, had made almost 70 per cent of the toys we bought. And when the war shut off Germany had not American ingenuity come again to the front, we would have been practically without toys. But once more we arose to the occasion and began to develop our own toy industry. What was the result? It is this. Today America is making the finest toys in the world, superior in design, quality of materials used, and workmanship, to any that can be purchased outside our own Country.
We have but to stop and think for a moment to find the reason. With the American toy manufacturer ultimate value is the standard. He manufactures the very best thing possible. The American product is real quality merchandise. Defects are not covered up with the paint brush, nor is construction done in a hurried, cheap way. When the finished toy leaves the shop it is the best that the manufacturer can make. He has used care and attention to make it that. Our toy makers do not make their toys with their original idea one of price, which has been the foreign manufacturers' first thought. Price comes later, after the finished product is completed.
One of the most difficult things to compete with, which the American toy man has been forced to meet, is this very question of price. You see, in foreign countries labor, even (Continued on page 32)

ALTHOUGH the buckskin-clad fur hunters who over-ran the Northern wilderness
a century and more ago were very poorly armed, their example is an excellent guide for your shooting. They could not be sure of their guns, so they shot right. Right shooting is fully explained in the four free Remington Right-from-the-Start instruction bookists. which will be mailed to you if you mention this magazine.
