The Toyman builds elaborate children’s toys, which he gives to the men, for them to present as presents.  He guarantees free repairs as well – and the toys all promptly break.  But they were really spy devices, which get monitored when brought in to be fixed.

Superman not only goes after the Toyman, but also the businessmen, publicly humiliating them with parade balloons.

This is also a trap for the egotistical Toyman, who attacks the balloon representing him, putting him right in Superman’s hands.

The Toyman returns in a couple of issues.
