A Look At Intricate Old Toys And A Venerable Phila. Firm
By Julia M. Klein, [Philadelphia] INQUIRER STAFF WRITER
Posted: April 18, 1995

...This is an exhibition that makes wandering through at random easy enough. Focus on the range of toy pianos, as well as other instruments, that put the A. Schoenhut Co. (1872-1935) on the map by enabling children to play real musical tunes.

...

The company went into bankruptcy in 1935, in the middle of the Depression, a disaster family members attributed mostly to cheap imports from Japan and Germany. Also contributing, said Ray, was the company's failure to keep pace with changing American tastes.

There were two successor companies to A. Schoenhut. The longer-lived, the O. Schoenhut Co., invented 4-5-6 Pick-Up Sticks, but had less success with other novelty items.

In 1981, the Jaymar Co., now based in Rochester, N.Y., bought out O. Schoenhut; it is still manufacturing Schoenhut toy pianos.
