French Dinky Toys

Dinky Toys appeared on the market in December 1933, but were called "Modelled Miniatures" until APril of 1934. THe production of Dinky Toys was begun at the same time in Liverpool, Britain, and in France at Bobigny. Both locations produced cars, trucks,buses,military vehicles, aircraft and ships. WHen WWII started, production stopped for the duration of the war, and reappeared in 1945,but there were no new models . New models started in 1946.*


THe boxes are easily distinguished because the writing was in French.
