    I was excited to find this Slingerland maybell banjo, (and friend). Very nice condition with original cloth case. I was actually hoping it was a violin. But this is great too. I looked it up a bit. Looks probably from the 1920s or 30s. They are just so cute! The other looks like a toy guitar? Correct me if you have any info please. Thanks for looking!

      1930's on Banjo but can't see guitar, try to post it by itself on another post so We can look at it!

      You have here an instrument known as a "banjolele". It is tuned and played just like a ukulele which is the "toy guitar" in your first photo.
