A history of architecture, in miniature, is seen here through a century of children's toys. For years, toy buildings have inspired the imaginations of both children and adults.

This book includes over 550 photographs of toy villages, dollhouses, barns, stables, schools, fire stations, stores, theaters, airports, railroad depots, garages, service stations, castles, forts, and other structures. Photographs from catalogs and magazines verify dates of production and manufacturers including Marx, Schoenhut, Bliss, Gottschalk, Plasticville, Keystone, Rich, Arcade, Built-Rite, Converse, Chein, Ohio Art, Renwal, and Tri-ang. Estimated prices are provided in the captions and sources for finding toy buildings are listed.
