RE: Recent Payva Post
Attached is the cardboard rider to a baggie that contained the Blue Box cruiser. You'll see that the three Payva toys shown in your blog piece are derived from these toys.
Since Blue Box appears to've made these toys over a longer period in time (also sold in boxes iirc), it might be they were the original manufacturers. Can't immediately recall another brand that did all four of these toys, but would be happy if another reader would know.
As you state in your blog piece, the cruiser was a popular design with all kinds of copycats. Including LP who made the familiar smaller copy in red, which then turns up in their own packs and many other brands' packs including Imperial's Apollo Moon Exploring series.
Hope that helps
