    Found this pull toy at an antique mall. It is mostly wood and fabric. Appears to be somewhat old. I think it may be made by Brio toy company out of Sweden, but not sure. Theres no plastic, ears are nailed on. The makers mark has been removed but it appears to have been where Brio placed there's. Also the pull string has been yanked out. It has been well used, one of the wheels has some damage. Any thoughts as to how old it is? I didn't pay much for it. It looked older than the other pull toys at the booth. It appears to be hand made. Anyways, thanks for looking.

    Mystery Solved

      Yes it is a looks like a Brio made in Sweden . Has all the look of their work . Very nice ! The Company I believe is still operating
      BRIO is a Swedish toy making company which specializes in wooden toys. In the year 1884 Ivar Bengtsson, a basket maker from Boalt in Scania founded the Brio toy company. It was then operated from Osby in scania for more than a century. Ultimately in the year 2006 the company was shifted to Malmo. Brio was taken over by ivar's three sons in the year 1908. BRIO stands for Bröderna Ivarsson or the brothers who are son of ivar.
      Just after the company was founded, it started BRIO Lekoseum which is a toy museum which contains thousands of toys from the company as well as other companies like Barbie and Märklin model railways. This was founded at their headquarters in the city of Osby where children can play with these toys
      Brio specializes in making toy trains made from wood. These Biro trains were first sold in Europe in the year 1958 and the company never looks back since then. This train doesn't contain any motorized units and are suitable for use by younger children. BRIO was the first company to mass produce rail pieces like the system of "peg and hole" to connect different pieces of the toy train. In the recent years this metal system has been replaced by small magnets which are easier to use and control. BRIO is also the first toy making company which had the ingenuity of using beechwood in its toys.
      Recently the wooden Brio train comes with batteries, remote control and engines that are driven by intelligent tracks. The license for Brio's bestselling "Thomas the Tank Engine" are shared by BRIO in major areas of Europe and Learning curve for the states.
      The other popular series of toys from BRIO includes the Theodore Tugboat. In these series the following toys were released until their production was stopped in the year 2000.
      Chester the Container Ship,
      the Dispatcher,
      Barrington barge
      Benjamin Bridge,
      And Bonavista barges.
      Other popular toy from BRIO includes BRIO-Mech construction kits. These kits consist of thin and long wooden slates whose large numbers of even spaced holes are held together by the use of colorful fastener made up of high quality plastic. These can be used by children to make strong and elaborate structure
      The rival makes their toys compatible with the toys produced by BRIO. The toys made by BRIO toy making company costs far more than the toys from any of its competitor because of high quality wood and techniques used in production of toys at the company. I see a black dog like yours at museum site .
