From the 1924 Dayton Catalog:

Dayton Friction Toys for the 1924 season are the most complete we have ever shown. New models have been added, improvements have been made. The finish, appearance, durable construction make the famous Gyro line of friction toys the most salable and desirable mechanical toys for the coming holiday season.

NOTE SOME OF THE SPECIAL FEATURES

Construction

Heavy metal, insuring the greatest reliability. Wheels made of steel, perfectly true and smooth running.

Driving Power

The 1923 demand for Gyro Motors convinced us that the Gyro Motor should be added to all our friction toys.

Every model as illustrated in catalog will have installed our now famous Gyro Motor, an exclusive feature found only in Dayton Friction Toys.

Finish

Two coats of paint finished with the highest grade of toy enamel obtain able applied by air-brush, eliminating runs or blisters.

Inspection

Each toy is thoroughly inspected, tested, enclosed in a separate box, standard form of packing one dozen to a carton.

Guarantee
Each toy is guaranteed to be strictly high-grade, up-to-date and salable.

A trial order will convince you of the worth and selling power of these toys.
