What a good kid! Those Falk workers seem hard to find- I have been looking for one with no luck.

I have told my daughter that everyone was impressed
with her gift. Told her to keep sending more. I ID both
toys with the help ol the book STEAMTOYS IN MOTION
By Morton HIRSCHBERG. Falk Sawyer is on page 141.

I'm pretty certain they are Arnold, that book is very good, but has a few mistakes. Either way they are very nice and could be as old as 1920's (definitely pre 1945)
