My son inherited this old box of 66 games a few months ago. It was made or published by the 'Tucket Toy Corp. of Woonsocket, RI - no year is given.

I haven't checked it thoroughly, but it appears that all (or nearly all) bits are included and their condition seems great for as old as this must be. I'm guessing 1940s or 1950s? Even the wood, hinges, and clasp are in good working order. Somewhere along the line, someone added ziplocks for the bits, but even one of the original mini-containers is at least partly there. And that spinner is metal - unbent!

Some of the mini-games on the cardboard inserts are exactly like ones I remember having as a child, but I know we didn't have a whole set in a Chest like this.

Does anyone have any idea if this is worth anything either to a collector or to the general public (aka eBayers)?

The type face on the lid looks like c. 1960 to me.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Yeah, I agree with the 1960's assessment.

It may have some value to a collector, especially of games by defunct companies.

I have some money from a toy company which printed it in Milwaukee in the 1930's or 40's and wonder as much myself. But I don't exactly know who or where might care.

I guess that's what eBay will prove to be the best resource for.

Do a google search for Tucket Toy Corp. and check out the first three results and the sixth seventh and ninth results.

It will help in valuation tremendously.

Hm, maybe we should just try to trade it. Seems someone's started a Math Trade recently...

Because of the "recession" that we are currently undergoing it may be better to keep hold of them until the market becomes a little more healthier. Many people have said that the games they have sold on Ebay have not gone for as much as they have liked.
