The Sun Rubber Company made dolls from rubber and squeaky toys from 1924. They toys were made in Barberton, Ohio.

Their toy hot water bottle proved to be very popular. Growth continued at Sun with sales of a teething ring and bath sets, as well as more dolls and doll accessories. With a patent for a 1934 DeSoto Airflow, the company entered into the rubber toy car business. They ceased production in 1974.

Markings

The dolls are usually marked on the back: "Sun Rubber Co."

In Canada, Viceroy Manufacturing Unlimited of Toronto sold similar named dolls.

I just found and bought an old doll at an estate sale. She's got a stamp on her upper back that says "MFD By the Sun Rubber Co. Barberton, O U.S.A. PAT. 211868P Pat. 2160739. She has no clothes and appears to have been melted at one point in time, although her head appears to be in great condition. Brown sleepy eyes that still work, open painted mouth, painted bottom lashes and real upper lashes. I found a similar doll on Etsy (the only one with the same markings) but the hair is definitely different than that one. Any ideas on where I can find more information on her or any information you may know? Thanks!
I can't help you much, but you might want to browse this page to see if you can find yours.

I have a Sun rubber car - a green two-door sedan. Is there such a thing as replacement wheels for these cars? I found the car years ago between the walls while rewiring an older home. Thank you!
Lovely to find an old toy between the walls! Very difficult to find sun rubber car tires. You might try to find one for parts? Maybe the listings on this page can help: Sun Rubber car.
