Another rainy day was spent photographing the rest of the furniture and packing it up into boxes again. As there is a lot of this tiny furniture I have decided to split it into two posts.
In this post I’ll show you some furniture from Blue Box in the smaller 1:24 scale.
Blue Box furniture was made by the Blue Box Toy Company of Hong Kong. This company was founded in 1952 by Peter Chan Pui. As well as dolls and dolls houses Blue Box made a large range of other types of toys including toy soldiers, model farms and die-cast models.Unlike many of the other toy companies I’ve read about Blue Box is still operating as a toy manufacturer now headed by CEO David Chan the son of the founder.
Here is a link to their website.
Naomi and I had a lot of Blue Box toys as children. They were relatively inexpensive and often sold in stores like Woolworth’s or in local newsagents and toy stores both in England and here in Australia.
Naomi certainly had Blue Box dolls house furniture as a child. Several of these pieces look very familiar to me. These three in particular.
If you are thinking that some of this furniture looks familiar to something else you have seen on this blog you are quite right.
A lot of the Blue Box furniture is exactly the same as the Triang range. Most Blue Box furniture that I have seen is clearly marked with the company name.
Here is some more Blue Box. After I had taken these photos and put everything back in the box I found 2 dressing table drawers in another box. These have now been returned to their rightful place.
Let’s see how it looks in my Chad Valley dolls house.
