The first history of what was Britain's, and the world's, biggest toymaker.

From modest beginnings in an old woodworking factory after the First World War, Walter, William and Arthur Lines had built their company by 1950 into the world's first multinational toy-making business. The core of Lines Brothers Ltd's extensive manufacturing network was always Tri-ang Toys, but by the time of its demise in 1971 what had by then become the Lines Group incorporated many subsidiary firms, which made some of the most popular British playthings of the twentieth century – FROG model aircraft, Minic transport toys, Pedigree prams, Spot-On model cars, Tri-ang Hornby trains, Scalextric racing sets and Sindy Dolls.

A colourful history of the development of these toys and the manufacturing empire behind them, this book will appeal both to collectors and to those who used to play with Tri-ang Toys.
