Albert Schoenhut was a German immigrant who arrived in Philadelphia in 1866 and began repairing toy pianos at Wanamaker’s department store. He founded Schoenhut in 1872 to produce high quality toy pianos and other musical instruments. As the business grew, Schoenhut expanded into other aspects of the toy market developing a variety of child’s dolls and painted wooden playsets. Their musical instruments and toys became very popular and the company enjoyed great success. In 1915 Schoenhut introduced it’s Submarine and Dreadnought Naval War Toy as World War I was dawning in Europe.

Yellow Garage dealers Diane and Al Luecke from The White Rabbit feature this original Schoenhut Submarine and Dreadnought Naval War Toy Set with the box. The set includes two wooden ships, a submarine and a dreadnought. The object of the game was for the submarine to fire it’s “torpedo” projectile at the red target on the side of the dreadnought. Hitting the target released a spring mounted mechanism which “blew-up” the deck of the dreadnought resulting in the ship’s destruction. The submarine is 6” in length while the dreadnought is 12”. Both ships are in excellent condition. The box is 12 1\4” X 6 1\4” with minimal age appropriate wear. The pictures provide the best description. Advertised by Schoenhut: “Without doubt this is the Greatest Toy Novelty of 1915.” Who can resist?
