Following on from my previous post about Frank Hornby’s Meccano toys, here is a Meccano enthusiast magazine sold in France in 1958.
The magazine features Meccano related news items, reports on aviation, space exploration, sports, science, competitions, a Dinky Toys Club Journal page, and some wonderful 1950s toy ads.
Below are selected scans.
Staying in a Meccano mood…
I helped my youngest son build a mini Meccano aeroplane over the weekend. Here are some pics from start to finish. For a toy so tiny and fiddly to put together, it looks pretty cool when all is done, with rolling wheels and a propeller that can turn.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
Coming soon… ideal toys, or toys from Ideal?
