The business of making money from the nostalgia that is connected with toys from time past is happening in Singapore according to this article. It is a fun read with some good pictures.

Children today have glorious toys at their disposal and soon will have easy access to 3D printing machines. Why should they be given tin toys that might cut their fingers?

Most of the toys illustrated have long histories way back before the time of the parents of today’s children.

I put out reproductions of old toys with which my grandchildren may play when they come to visit. An enjoyable time is had by all.

The real old stuff is on a high shelf.
