Siku – quality die cast toys from Germany

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.
