Former Popular Toy Company In Illinois Is Making A Comeback
A comeback is happening In Illinois for a former popular toy company.
Nothing Lasts Forever
Unfortunately, it is part of life, nothing lasts forever. Your favorite shows end at some point. Businesses close down. They stop making certain products. If it is something you really enjoy, of course, it is very disappointing. Eventually, you get over it and move on to the next thing.
Are You Ready For A Comeback
Sometimes you get lucky and your favorite movie franchise, band, or athlete will make a comeback. It makes you happy when that piece of your life returns. In the end, it might not work out but many times it comes back bigger and better. All I have to say is Michael Jordan.
Favorite Toys As A Kid
When I was a child, I really like playing with my toys like most kids. Some of my favorites were cars, trucks, Matchbox, Hot Wheels, Tonka, and Nylint. They gave me hours of enjoyment. I even still have a few of them in my basement.
Legendary Toy Company In Rockford, Illinois
Did you know that there is a legendary toy company that has a history in Rockford, Illinois? It is Nylint Toys.
According to nylinttoys.com,
"Nylint was founded in 1937 in Rockford, Illinois, by Bernard Klint, brother Ragnar Klint and their uncle, David Nyberg. The company first produced kitchen utensils and later manufactured goods to support the military during World War II. In 1945, they changed course to toy production, focusing on steel-pressed trucks, construction vehicles, and other automobiles."
Nylint Toys Is Making A Comeback
Like I was talking about earlier, Nylint Toys ran its course and shut down its operations. Now, there is good news. The family wants to bring it back.
Emmy Klint's grandfather started the company many years ago. Even though everyone discouraged her from doing it, she has decided to re-launch the family business. She wanted her son and other children to experience these iconic products. It has been a lifelong dream to bring back the toys.
Why The Comeback Of Nylint Toys
She really believes in their family business and the toys are among some of the best of all time. The goal is to bring joy to a new generation. The mission is to continue the family legacy and tradition.
