AUBURN

The Auburn Rubber company's primary product line was making rubber soles for shoes. In the 1930s they started making toys including, balls, vehicles and figures out of rubber. WWII stopped toy production due to raw material rationing. After the war was over Auburn purchased new plastic injection machines and began making some highly detailed figures out of rubber like vinyl. Like other toy figure makers of the 1950s & 60s Auburn packed their items in a wide array of styles including; small cellophane bags, small boxes, header card bags and boxed playsets designed to be able to sell to any budget. In late 1959 Auburn sold their entire toy line including all of the tooling to the city of Deming New Mexico who was trying to find jobs for city residents. The later (Deming, New Mexico)header card sets as seen above used a generic card with the item number and set type stamped on the front. About the time of the the move to New Mexico toys began to be made from polyethylene soft plastic rater than rubber like vinyl. Due to the changing toy market the Deming operation went out of business in 1969.

FARM ITEMS

Auburn made hard rubber animals from the late 1940s through the early 1950s. They then switched to the more well known rubber like vinyl animals. When found today these early animals often have warped bases, stress cracks and/or chunks missing.

NONE - Small header card bag seen on left above. Deming New Mexico production. Has four vinyl animals.

NONE - Larger header card bag seen on right above. Also Deming New Mexico production. Has three soft plastic animals + vinyl cow and horse. Horse not seen often in white.

Tim Geppert in his seminal plastic figure guide breaks the farm animals into two groups. However upon close inspection there appear to have been 3 or even 4 groups of these animals made. The first group has flat unmarked oval/rectangle bases and you can see mold ejector pin markings on one side of the animal from when the figure was popped out of the mold. Perhaps to get rid of these ejector marks the animals were redone and the ejector pins were relocated to push the animals out from under the base leaving one or two "dimple" marks. Then finally, perhaps to conserve material, animals were made with small irregular bases (also with the ejector dimples under the base). Some animals have "MADE IN USA" inside one of the dimples. The following pictures show animals by type and we undoubtedly are missing some variations. Usually found in rubber like vinyl, but later examples were made in soft plastic.
