If you're like reader Arto and me then you'll love toys by Sixties Hong Kong toymaker and SWORD pioneer T in a Circle aka Tai Hing. Besides making the two toys, which I believe Century 21 used as the basis oif the SWORD fleet, the Moon Bus and Prospector, T in a Circle [not to be confused with US firm Tarheel] made tons more cool plastic toys and in particular vehicles. Over the past six months many new T toys have surfaced, which were both new to me and the blog. Enjoy.
Super Hi Way Copter c/o Ferryman
Moonranger, blue, in unusual flap lid box c/o Arto
Space Capsule, blue, c/o Vectis. The Capsule is clearly based on Japanese tin toys like this Capsule 5 below c/c Alphadrome.
Boeing 707 Battery Operated Jet Plane c/o Ebay. It may have been a copy of Clifford's/H's version below c/o Ferryman.
Boeing 727 c/o Ebay
Jumbo Jet Boeing 747 c/o Ebay
Air Plane c/o Woodsy
Above: Spanish clone of T's Amphibious Car [below] with different colouring and box art c/o Juguetes Antiguos Sevilla.
Last but not least, APOLLO 11 c/o Woodsy, which spun round the ceiling hanging from a nylon cord. There are many other versions by different toymakers inlcuding MOON TREK and this Japanese MOON SCOUT [bottom picture] c/o Ebay.
Footnote: I need a volunteer, who likes T toys, to update the T Checklist on the blog. If anyone is interested please let me know.
