Fun Ho! History

Tiger Toys - Header/Harvester

This was an ingenious toy made of tinplate, but with levers made of cast alumimium.

Movement was accurately achieved with three well placed pulleys, one on the axle behind the offside wheel, the second on the side of the harvester, and a third driving the axle through the gathering "sails," each connected to each other by rubber bands.

A suitably placed Tiger Toy transfer identifies this well designed and true to life model toy.
