Toys for Expo 58

Both firms produced toys for the 1958 World Fair in Brussels. The two sets were probably made independently but they go well together and the style of the packings are quite similar. Both sets were ordered by Belgian company Boismanu.


Tekno:  Mercedes Express (No.851)

Reisler: Six figures (See 3,5 cm "Figuroversigt")

These sets and numerous other items that were produced for the exhibition are very popular collectors items.
