The Sun Rubber Company made dolls from rubber and squeaky toys from 1924. They toys were made in Barberton, Ohio.

Their toy hot water bottle proved to be very popular. Growth continued at Sun with sales of a teething ring and bath sets, as well as more dolls and doll accessories. With a patent for a 1934 DeSoto Airflow, the company entered into the rubber toy car business. They ceased production in 1974.

Markings

The dolls are usually marked on the back: "Sun Rubber Co."

In Canada, Viceroy Manufacturing Unlimited of Toronto sold similar named dolls.

I have a Sun rubber car - a green two-door sedan. Is there such a thing as replacement wheels for these cars? I found the car years ago between the walls while rewiring an older home. Thank you!
►reply: Lovely to find an old toy between the walls! Very difficult to find sun rubber car tires. You might try to find one for parts? Maybe the listings on this page can help: Sun Rubber car.
