Metal Litho Soup Bowls

C. Carey Cloud created the Metal Litho Soup Bowls for Cracker Jack out of scrap metal. Carey Cloud discovered that Ball Brothers, maker of home canning lids, had tons of scrap two-inch metal discs. Buying the scrap metal for only $25 per ton for his toys, he was able to make over eighty million toys for Cracker Jack. When Ball Brothers discovered that he was making toys from the scrap metal, they raised the price to $125 per ton, and that was the end of his metal toys.

The toys he made from the scrap metal were, Metal Litho Garage, Metal Litho Typewriter, Metal Litho Piano, Metal Litho Cabinets, Metal Litho Range, Metal Litho Clock, Metal Litho Radio, Embossed Metal Circles, Metal Chirpers, Metal Litho Plates.

Other toys he made from the scrap metal were...
