It's week 52 of our Kansas Sesquicentennial video series—our last video for this project, and as toys can be such a part of the holiday scene, we thought we'd wrap our year-long video series with a look at our antique Schoenhut Circus collection. These toys date back to the early 1900s. Children could collect them and stage their own "play" circus, complete with clowns, animals, ladders, balls and a variety of other props. The figures are moveable, jointed with heavy rubber cord and painted in bright enamel colors.
