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.
Our grateful thanks to those who have already contributed images, acknowledgements have been made in product text.
"Happy Prince Series"
Kiddicraft 'Sensible' Toys have always been made up to a high standard of quality and durability, and we are very reluctant indeed to lower this standard. However, there is a demand for cheaper versions of the more popular Kiddicraft 'Sensible' Toys, for sale at lower prices to people who cannot afford the high quality of Kiddicraft.
We are, therefore, offering cheaper alternatives to some of our toys, under the trade name of "Happy Prince". Although these are very much lower in price, we have tried to maintain a reasonable standard of quality and strength and to guard against anything which might prove dangerous to a child. Some "Happy Prince" toys are described on the following pages, and others become available from time to time. "Happy Prince" toys are boxed distinctively, in four colour packs.
