Ohio Art was started by Henry Simon Winzeler in 1908. They are best known for the Etch A Sketch, but started as a lithographed tin maker. During the 1950s they produced many farm playsets and made at least three different series of animals.

Farm Series One

The first series was in a flat style of hard plastic, produced from 1950-1952


Farm Series Two

The second series was made in a semi-hard plastic, then in hard styrene plastic, and later in soft plastic. They were in production from 1951 to 1974

This series is larger and was made of rubbery vinyl from 1956 to 1967.

Farm Series Four

In addition some larger sets had other animals of soft plastic, looking mostly like Marx copies. They were in production form about 1961 to 1969.
