shelf 1 Here are some photos of the mixers on display shelves. Most are toys that were meant to be played with. Some are models, and some are salesmen's samples.

All of the great toy names are represented in this collection: Buddy L, Tonka, Structo, Matchbox, and of course, Marx, Mattel and Kenton, 1st Gear and Conrad.
Smith Miller, Hubley, Doepke and many more.
The toys followed the development of the real machines. As the real transit mixers became larger and more powerful, the toys too had more tires and bigger mixing barrels. Front Discharge mixer toys started showing up soon after the real mixers appeared at construction sites.
