Children loved to play with Erzgebirge boats and cars in the early 1900s. My mother would display the Erzgebirge toys sent to her as a child by relatives from Germany under our Christmas tree when I was growing up. This tradition has now become wildly popular by collectors of Christmas. Here is a corner of my toy shelf displaying Erzgebirge boats, cars and busses . . . a few pieces from my mother's collection included.
