Ponylope Plastic Horses & More

Bergen Toy & Novelty Co.(often abbreviated Beton)
Horses and Equestrians
plus Marching Cadets and Standing Cowboys and Indians 

Sales list. All photos show the actual items for sale, unless stated otherwise. ID numbers (if included) are from Richard O'Brien's Collecting American-Made Toy Soldiers, Edition No. 3, 1997. Both paint condition and color variations among otherwise identical figures are very important for Beton toys, and every attempt has been made to provide accurate verbal descriptions of those features. Mild paint loss and imperfections are common, but there are no breaks, splits, cracks, chips, repairs, significant paint wear, or deterioration of the plastic unless noted. All items are in hard plastic unless stated otherwise. If you would like to see another view of any figure or group, Ponylope can e-mail photos on request — just ask! Free shipping on all orders of $75 or more.

BT 136 Cowgirl, on BT 162 Large Standing Horse
BT 137 Cowboy, on BT 120 Large Running Horse

Something about the cowgirls; they seem to wear fast. This gal has paint loss on her nose, chin, and hat (especially the back crown). But she’s molded in an unusual light brown with hints of other shades. Her mount is also an unusual sorrel shade with beige-y overpainting. The cowboy shows excellent, unworn paint over a yellow body, and his horse is solid brown.

BT 130 Prancing Horse (no saddle)    

A quite rare pose! It’s unclear what Beton meant this horse for. Few riders fit securely on its narrow, slippery back, though it is a perfect Indian mount (use removable museum wax to hold the figure). Not a draft horse by any measure, it works well as a farm riding horse, and Ponylope owns many matching horse and colt pairs. See the FARM page for a black mare and colt on sale. This gray with white accent paint has some paint loss. (Lefthand photo is slightly more true to actual color.)

P007          SOLD

A Girl of the Golden West

P051a P051b

Plastic Toys Inc. Cowgirl with Lasso

Figures made by this company are often mistaken for or lumped together with Beton toys.
This graceful cowgirl is in better condition than most, though she has some specks and wear on her base.
On the bottom, a previous owner marked what looks like a “10” in red. In my book, she definitely rates a 10!

P051     $10          SOLD




B-1 Large Cowboy and Horse Set, in Bag (Hard Plastic)

Cowboy is molded in green plastic with beige, black, and yellow accent paint. Horse is medium brown with black accent paint. Both are in excellent condition. The header card is smooth and unworn; back is browned at the top, however, where not covered by the bag. Bag is still nicely attached, but now cloudy. No tears. The rubber bands are no longer holding the figures to the card. A rare find in any condition.
