The first gauge of train that would become popular was the O gauge and Bing adopted this size, but later would invent a smaller size, the OO. The company is also credited with perfecting a method of building toys called the Nuremberg Style which was used into the 1950's.

The company was quite successful in the toy business and by 1914, the company had over 5000 employees. Unfortunately the success of the company couldn't last as WWI was approaching and high tarrifs were placed on toys being imported into the US, making German toy companies unable to compete in the United States toy market, although they still had a strong presence in Canada.

Unfortunately for the Bing family, they were forced to flea Germany due to the rise of Adolf Hitler and the fact that they were Jewish. Already in financial trouble the company folded in 1933.

If you are able to find Antique Gebruder Bing Toys to add to your collection, you have certainly found a great piece of toy history.
