Products produced between 1932 and 1962 carried a 2 or 3 digit reference number prefixed by the letter K.
Numbers were not engraved into product, but were indicated on the box and in the consumer catalogues included in every product. Trade catalogues also carry the appropriate references.
Where there is a product in the archive we have photographed it. Where we have no product but do have a catalogue then we have scanned the catalogue page as an image 'holder' until we get an actual product to photograph. Where we have no product or no image then we've posted a 'WANTED' sign. Please contact us through the 'Contact Us' link in the menu bar if you can help.
Our grateful thanks to those who have already contributed images, acknowledgements have been made in product text.
A psychologically useful and interesting toy. It will hold the attention of the child for long periods and encourage concentration. All young children love screwing things on and off. Putting the unbreakable nuts on to the spindle teaches finger control, colour assortment and a sense of symmetry.
This is not such a "screwy" idea as it looks. In fact many mothers claim it to be the most successful toy ever designed by Hilary Page. It is based on the child's love of repetition and the attraction of screwing things on and off. The nuts can be put on to the spindle in an endless number of different colour combinations - and they are unbreakable. Helps to develop an early sense of symmetry.
