Elastolin figures were manufactured by the toy company O. & M. Hausser from Neustadt near Coburg, which, according to the museum, stopped production around 40 years ago. The small elastoline figures, which essentially consist of wood flour and glue, have been elaborately painted and are known beyond Germany. "The motifs are diverse: from animals, soldiers to cowboys and Indians, everything was there," explained museum chief Adina Rösch.
