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.
The twelve designs of Kidicraft simple Jigsaw from which to choose are cut so that the pieces drop into place into a "tray". This is ideal for a child on a journey or who must rest. The completed jigsaw can be carried about without the pieces coming apart. The pieces can be glued in place to make a "picture" for the wall. Each jigsaw has been divided up into pieces directly related to the make-up of what is depicted, so that a child learns to recognise these parts of the whole in real life. After making up the jigsaw, the child can be told a simple story relating to the animal or object to daily affairs.
Age: from 2 years
Note: You will find more than 12 designs here as Kiddicraft swapped out some designs for new ones each year. As catalogues don't list the detail and we have no packaging for the earliest editions I am afraid they are difficult to date.<<< Back to list
