Fun Ho! was a New Zealand toy manufacturer that produced cast aluminium toys from 1935 to 1982. The company was founded by George Underwood in Inglewood, Taranaki, and was originally called Underwood Engineering. Underwood started making toys as a way to use up scrap metal from his other businesses. The first toys were made in the early 1930s, and were initially given away as promotional items. However, the toys proved to be popular, and Underwood began to sell them commercially in 1935.
The company's name was changed to Fun Ho! in 1942. The name was chosen because it was thought to be catchy and appealing to children. Fun Ho! toys were known for their high quality and durability. They were made from solid aluminium, and were designed to withstand rough play. The toys were also brightly coloured, and were often decorated with intricate details.
