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.
