This Group section dedicated to Kenton Circus Toys. This page is dedicated to educating the membership on those toys. My plan is to build a foundation based on catalogs and other reference sources that are from recognized experts in the field. Additional discussion may be added to pictures from knowledgeable collectors. Any discussion added may be edited or summarized by the moderator to retain the educational value of the toy and to minimize clutter. Please review the replies to each picture as they may contain additional information. Order of posting is most recent first. You may therefore find it easier to read bottom up.

Later Castings / Reproductions


After the Kenton Toy Factory closed. Others at times tried to recreate some of the Kenton Toys. This section covers some of those efforts.


First is a catalog by Frank L. Culp and Sons. Frank bought many of the original kenton molds around 1959. This catalog contains Kenton reproductions with slight variations , some original Culp designs as well as reproductions of other cast iron toy brands. Print date is estimated as 1972.

Made from 1924 - 1927

Two sizes 8 inch and 10 inch

Referencing Bob Saylors Kenton Kenton Toy Guide the yellow color with hippo figure is correct.
