Jouets Mont-Blanc General Catalogue 1969

Jouets Mont-Blanc General Catalogue 1969. France. Front cover.

The Mont-Blanc 1969 tri language catalogue (French, English and German) featured not only a small range of traditional toys and games but a selection of household telephones and, bizarrely, a full-size kitchen.

Being a 1969 catalogue it’s good to see the famous and iconic Concorde aeroplane represented – possibly one of the very first toys to do so.

Remote control Intercontinental Concorde with patented tilting nose system, imitation engine hum and flickering jets. 1969.

I love this picture of a futuristic space vehicle and traditional farm tractor. Sci-fi meets agriculture! Somehow War of the Worlds by HG Wells came to my mind.

Electric motor non-stop Unique Space-Car and remote control McCormick Tractor. 1969.

Onto the full scans. Here we see everything from motorised and remote control cars, planes and cranes – to building bricks – to globes – to rubber ducks – and that full size kitchen we were talking about 🙂

  1. Definitely a fan of Concorde! I never got to fly on one but I did visit RAF Duxford and it’s museum which houses one of the four prototype Concorde and I got to walk aboard it and check out the cockpit. And may I ask, do you like kitchens? You featured one back on March 9th in your post for Acme Boots and bubble-gum!

    • Well spotted about the previous kitchen ad, it’s from the same ‘Diane’ range. I do like kitchens actually, focal point of the home, warmth and nourishment. That’s so cool you got to see Concorde close up and inside too! As a very young boy I saw Concorde fly over – we heard it first – then what a sight with its unique shape, was like seeing a space ship in my young mind back then.

      • I did get to inspect Concorde close up but I also saw her in the air too. I was on a day trip to LEGOLAND Windsor which is just next door to Heathrow and as I was leaving Concorde flew over as it came in to land.. Where I was stood and the angle of approach meant it flew straight over me (it was just like the opening scene of Star Wars, very similar to your description). Couldn’t get a picture as I’d used all the film in my camera in LEGOLAND 😦
