From Wikipedia article on Frantz Mfg. Co. (version 12:33, 28 May 2014‎ Epicgenius)
Hustler Toy Corporation

Frantz chartered the Hustler Toy Corporation in the State of Illinois on December 6, 1924 and produced a line of wooden toys that were sold to major toy and department stores from coast to coast including Macy's in New York and Marshall Field's in Chicago. Toys were produced until 1934 when declining sales due to the depression years of the 20's and 30's caused Frantz to discontinue those operations.

In 1934, Frantz acquired the Koehler Die Company, a subsidiary of the L.W. Browne Manufacturing Company of DeKalb, Illinois. Koehler manufactured roller skates. Frantz invested in its skate production and soon became one of the top producers of roller skates in the United States. The skates were marketed under the name "Hustler Speed King Roller Skates" and the line was carried by jobbers, catalog premium houses, hardware and variety stores, and large chain stores throughout the country including Sears, Macy's, Montgomery Ward, Gimbels, and Marshall Field's. By the early 70's, roller skate sales were in decline and production was discontinued. The last roller skate came off the production line on November 27, 1973.

The part that the wikipedia article misses is that Frantz first made games under their name then made games under Hustler Toy Corporatioon name. After Hustler ceased Frantz hasn't made any more games.
