About Doepke Toys
It is believed that almost every Doepke Construction and Fire Toy was shipped with a Mini-Catalog
listing other toys in the Doepke line-up. For the first seven years these catalogs changed each year as
toys were added or dropped from the line. Beginning in 1953, however, just the covers were changed.
[1952 actually had two different catalogs as noted below.]
Please note that the quality of the print on the inside pages is as good as I could get it with my equipment. Sorry about that.

The #2000 Wooldridge Dump Truck is shown with a rubber
stack and push-nut style hub caps which were never used on a
production toy.

The #2002 Cement Mixer has non--production style wheels.

A great pledge for Model "Constructioneers" appears in this
first catalog.

The front and back cover of each catalog
carried the toy name. All other pages were
identical. This probably saved in catalog
production costs.
