Siku’s origins began in the German town of Ludenscheid in 1921. It was founded by Richard Sieper, a toolmaker working in metals and plastics. Early production items included aluminium cutlery, tools, belt buckles, buttons, military badges and decorations. The company went on to became a leader in the field of thermo-plastics, and in 1950 registered the name SIKU – formed from the first two letters of Sieper, and the first two letters of Kunstoff – the German word for synthetic material or plastic.

The Matchbox die cast range was introduced to the UK by Lesney Products in 1953. The product took the name ‘Matchbox’ because their original models were packed in boxes similar in size and style to boxes of matches sold at the time. In addition to their die-cast vehicle lines Matchbox produced a wide range of toys and established itself as a hugely popular brand around the world.
