1910 Horsman Baby Bumps doll

Edward Imeson Horsman (E. I. Horsman) opened a toy company in New York City, New York in 1865 and became a leader in the toy industry.  In the early years Horsman imported dolls from outside the USA, starting in 1904 they distributed "Babyland Rag Dolls" made of all cloth created by Albert Bruckner.  About 1909 Horsman used a new formula to make composition "Can't break Em" doll heads like the Billiken and a variety of Mama and Baby dolls. 


Between 1919 to 1925 Horsman and Aetna Doll & Toy merged. By 1930 Horsman acquired the Amberg doll company, their competitor and continued to produce some of Amberg's dolls, notably the Vanta Baby and Peggy dolls.  In October 1933 Horsman became a subsidiary of the Regal Doll USA company, in 1986 the Horsman name was sold to the Asian company Gata - Gatabox LTD. of Hong Hong, which produced dolls under the name Horsman LTD.
