ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

Building blocks have been a familiar presence in children's toy collections for generations, but in the twentieth century new production techniques allowed the building brick to evolve into a multiplicity of systems that could make any child his or her own architect and skilled builder, capable of constructing realistic and sturdy miniature buildings.

This highly illustrated book is devoted to British building toys with all the major brands and some of the minor ones represented. Photographs of sets, completed buildings and the box art and advertising material that were used to sell these toys make this book a feast of nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the middle years of the last century, and an invaluable source of information for any collectors who keep the memory of these toys alive today.
