Joy Toys started out with another name, Elf Toys, in 1955. It was Owned by Fred Elford, who employed (also directors?) Fred Hall, his son Ted Hall (joining in 1964, after finishing an apprenticeship elsewhere) and Fred's half brother Philip Hall. Generally, Jack Elford put up the money and did the management and sales stuff, and the Hall family concentrated on various aspects of design and production. The business was initially based at Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire, in mid west of England, near the border with Wales.

In 1967 Fred Elford wanted to retire, and sold the company. The new owners initially invited the Hall family to remain managing the business, but they fell out, so Fred and Ted Hall left about a year and a half later, and with another family member, set up Joy Toys at nearby Upton-on-Severn. A few months later Elf Toys closed down, and Philip Hall joined another toy company being set up at the time, Park Toys.

Fred Hall died in 1985, and the other family member, John Cartright, left to follow another career in 1986, leaving Ted Hall to do everything, perhaps the cause of him having a heart attack in 1987. Joy Toys was sold to TP Activity Toys, who sold the Joy Toy name and range in 1999. It is still going, but has long since ceased to include anything of interest to members of this forum.

The fort in photo above is the 3rd version 'Fort Cherokee', and probably dates from circa 1980-87.

I'm a bit busy at present (death in family) but will post photos of all my extensive collection of Elf/Joy items over the coming weeks - I was hoping someone else would raise the topic first, before I posted about them.

No naughty toys, although I think they may have made a kids garden climbing frame, which you and a naughty 'friend' might like to tie each other to and then whip2  each other or whatever........

Their more recent toys included a farm, a dolls house, a wildlife park, one remaining castle and other similar size wooden toys, but all redesigned for very young children, say 3 year olds. I think also a few 'soldiers', but in a larger scale, jointed and cartoony, like other items for 3 year olds.
