    First off, If this is in the wrong section let me apologise. I just didn' see another section where these could possibly fit. So I've got a very large amount of all these lil miniatures, someone collected a while from what I can see. My question is what are they or what were they used for, are they old crackerjack prizes? Next question is how old do you guys think they Are? I was guessing 50s-60s but just not sure. TIA for any info you have...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Could be gumball/vending machine prizes or cereal premiums also.

    I do see some of those in there for sure especially the umbrellas and such, but not all of them maybe is a mix of anything miniature?

    I see what you mean on some of those too

    oh those look like fun:) I agree with johnny and Kronos, also some could be cracker jack toys too - the camel looks like hard plastic. I see one says 'Made in Hong Kong' so you are right on the dates. The dinosaur might be a toy, they did series of miniature dinosaurs.

    I see some cocktail garnishings as well - especially the pink elephant, beer mug, camel, & Nessie (1st pic) - that's a fun jumble

    I don't see any cracker jacks from late 1950s-1970s.
    The toys I remember as a child were more intricate.
    The babies above do not appear to be old king cake babies.
    I have no idea what else other than cupcake decorations? idk?
