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.
Here is a really good idea for toddlers. 12 beakers in attractive bright colours, each with a different picture on the bottom, nest so they all fit inside the largest one. When turned upside-down, they can be built into a tower and knocked down again. The child will recognise each different size by the attractive picture impressed on the bottom. This toy should remain a favourite for several years. It has infinite possibilities for games on the floor, in the bath, with sand, and many games of imaginative play.
An alternative version of this toy, in almost indestructible polythene, carries reference K263 (P)
