THE SCHOENHUTT HUMPTY DUMPTY CIRCUS

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON. 

AMAZING SCHOENHUT DISPLAY, A MESSAGE FROM CROTON'S TOM MIANO OF SERIOUSTOYZ

BACK IN 2014, TOM MANO gave us the scoop on a special exhibit of Schoenhut toys at the Coney Island Sideshow Museum in Brooklyn, NY. This was a unique opportunity to see a giant set-up of the "Humpty Dumpty" circus. With over 200 original pieces, this was one of the largest Schoenhut collections ever exhibited, and everything was set up in a large display, with dozens of "acts" going on. Additionally, there was a separate display of Schoenhut's extremely rare "Teddy Roosevelt on Safari" set. A stop-action movie created with the collection's figures was also being shown.

We've had a request to see those photos again--click on the images below--ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. 

And stay tuned for news about the upcoming auction at SERIOUSTOYZ.COM--which has had to be postponed due to a serious illness in the family. Please keep Tom in your prayers.
