German exports of Christmas toys to the United States has been replaced this year by the import of Japanese toys as a result of the Jewish boycott of German goods, the Berliner Tageblatt declared today, disclosing that German toy sales in America are a half million dollars less than last year.

Germany, which formerly occupied first place in American toy imports, the Tageblatt stated, declined from fifty-one percent to thirty-four percent compared to last year. Japanese imports, however, rose from thirty-nine to sixty percent of the entire American import of toys.
