U.S. Nazi Toys Teach Kids War

This article critising imported German toy soldiers was published in Chucago Daily Times on 15th September 1937: "Nazi swastikas wave ... a cannon "booms" ...sparks fly from machine guns...signal communication lights flash. It is WAR, but a miniature war. A war played by American boys and girls with toy soldiers which are exact copies of the new Hitler military machine. Toy soldiers imported from Germany instill in American children the "glory" of war, TIMES reporters "covering" American nazidom learned. Two German import stores in the Yorkville section of New York City sell hundreds of nazi toy soldiers each year. The stores have smaller displays of American soldiers but they are not nearly as popular as those of the nazi regime". Byline: William Mueller, John C. Metcalfe, James J. Metcalfe; 1937-09-15; Chicago Daily Times; pages 1, 3, 14-19, 32-33
