We offer for your consideration this 1929 STEELCRAFT ZEPPELIN PULL TOY , star decal is still attached others are not visible. In the 1930's, the Steelcraft Toy Co. in Murray, Ohio, produced toy zeppelins. The company manufactured zeppelins with different decals, including Akron and Graf Zeppelin. Your pressed steel Good Year Blimp was made in the 1930's by Steelcraft. There is a gondola with caster wheels that is concealed within the body of the zeppelin. This made it easier for a child to play with it on the floor. Aviation collectors covet toy zeppelins, especially those made by Steelcraft.
