Heros produced some of the most beautiful and playable wooden toys of the 20th century, and while the brand was started in the 1800s by Carl Rossberg the firm actually traces its origins to a single sawmill in the 14th century! Today, the company operates under the Eichhorn banner, and they do still produce lovely products in the same Bavarian region near the original mill.
This bold and beautifully simple Heros brand transport truck was likely made in the early 1970s. Measuring about 8", it is in excellent condition and shows nearly no signs of wear. The original sticker with the "Made in Western Germany" markings are still clearly visible. This is a lovely piece that could help complete your classic and vintage toy collection, but it is also a very playable toy that would surely delight any young truck lover.
