Tim-Mee toys started about 1950-52 as a subsidiary of the Anchor Brush company through an idea to make toys to keep their machinery always in use. Tim-Mee figures were sold in bagged sets of varying sizes and contained a wide array of subject matter. They were mainly sold in grocery, drug and 5 & 10 stores. Below are some of the trade ads used to woo these stores into carrying the Tim-Mee line. In 1964 (official Jan.1,1965) Anchor Brush sold Tim-Mee Toys to Processed Plastic who continued to sell the Tim-Mee toy figure line to complement their line of airplanes, boats and other vehicles. The Tim-Mee name was still used Along with the Processed Plastic name and their earlier marketing name of BEE LINE toys. In 2004 Processed Plastic merged with Strombecker-Tootsietoy but it went out of business in 2005 and most of the assets were purchased by J.Lloyd International. Victory Buy is currently buying product from J.Lloyd International and selling under the Tim-Mee Toy brand name
