A.K.A. The Sifo Novelty Company
St. Paul, Minnesota
1944 - 1975
Sifo toys were designed to help children build their bodies by simple exercise, their minds through solving simple problems and providing necessary recreation, their motor and mechanical skills through trial and error, repetition and use of memory. They advertised that their wood was cut and sawed in their Norway, Michigan plant which was then sent to St. Paul to be finished. Sifo produced several different pull toys. The good news is that they are always marked with the Sifo name. We have included only a fraction of their toys for reference.
