    Textbook authentic wear and alligatored paint on this folk art dog pull toy. Not shown is a tack on his neck, by the yellow leash, for a string. Depression era make-do toy? 8" long, 7" tall. Possible this was a craft project with a template sold (or shown) in a home craftsman or popular mechanics type publication. (See notes, as a brilliant follower provides information on what this toy actually is!)

      The painting of eyes is same as well as construction . I did not find a dog but what do you think ? I think your might be a bear not a dog ?

      That's GREAT, and there he is. I had the date right! Hilarious. I was thinking it was a template toy...built at home but from a diagram and instructions commonly available from hobbyist magazines of the era. Good Work!

      The Toy Kraft Company
      Wooster, Ohio
      1916 – 1950

      By 1927, the company was shipping over a million colorful wooden toys a year around the country. In the 1940’s Toy Kraft introduced a cheaper cardboard material in their toy production which effected the quality of their toys. Toy Kraft’s earlier toys can be identified by a white sticker that reads “Duckartoys Toy-Kraft Toys.” Their later toys are identified by a square sticker that reads “The Toy-Kraft Co. Studios” and then “Toy-Kraft, Inc. Wooster.” Toy Kraft’s original toys were made with ponderosa pine and included lead-based oil paints.

      In 1940’s the company was sold to Bauer Manufacturing Company and in 1950, the company filed for bankruptcy. A Wooster, Ohio company is currently reproducing Toy Kraft’s designs – but they have to use different wood, white pine, plywood and fiberboard, since ponderosa pine is no longer available. Reproduction toys have the later sticker “Toy-Kraft, Inc. Wooster”.
