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.


F140 Forest Toys - Travelling Zoo

Kiddicraft FOREST TOYS 

Children are sensitive at a certain age to texture, weight and form in their playthings.  Clear colours which harmonise and contrast also appeal to them.  These qualities can be combined particularly well in wooden toys.  Consequently every child should be given wooden toys of good design, amongst others.  Forest Toys are made of selected wood, beautifully finished in non-toxic colours and clear lacquer.  The box of each is labelled according to the age at which a child will most appreciate the plaything.  The Forest range includes playthings to interest children actively moving about, and also for them to enjoy during hours of quiet constructive play.  There are push toys and pull toys and toys to put together on the floor.  Forest Toys are designed by William Singleton, M.S.I.A., who has considerable experience in wooden toy making.  Registered designs.


A keeper drives the tractor pulling two trucks in which four animals are travelling.  The easily recognised animals will be greeted with delight, to be stood up with their attendant or loaded for journeys from place to place.

Age :  3 - 5 years.
