Bill Ding Blocks

I just love these interlocking wooden men that are on display at my sister Pegerty’s house. I found out that they are called “Bill Ding” blocks and they went into production in 1931.

Here’s a whole lot of information on Strombeck-Becker Manufacturing Company, which made these and many other cool toys.

  1. These are so cool! Fascinating history. As the ad for one of the toys said, “Intensely interesting!” Thanks for sharing this.
