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.

This is a "pride of possession" toy and will be treasured for many years.
Six STRONG, colourful eggs nest one inside the other with the baby chick living permanently inside the smallest egg. All children love toys which can be taken apart and fitted together again and the chick will be put "safely to bed" many, many times. Each egg is "ringed" at one end so that it can be stood up seperately.
Age: 2 1/2 to 6 years
Year : 1963
Notes : Previous versions of this toy had 10 eggs - the number was reduced as the smaller sizes became classified as a choking hazard under improved Toy Safety Regulations.
