This small company has not been researched so far, the only information I could find was on http://www.87thscale.info/
CGGC Grisoni was a small Italian producer of plastic scale model kits and plastic toys in several scales. The company was active during the 70s and the 80s, although it is difficult to find the exact years of foundation and disappearance.
The name of the company is Grisoni Giocatteli S.p.A. and was based on Zola Predosa (Bolonia). A source in a discussion board also says that Grisoni took over Cané Giocattelli, a competitor producer of plastic toys.
The plastic kits were mostly cars and motorbikes (in 1:43rd and 1:48th scale) as well as robots. Other known plastic toys were made in 1:72nd to 1:120th scale. Some are similar to Kinder Surprise toys, other are beach toys.
My only toys made by this company are these two cars. They are made in a 1:43 to 1:48 scale... the Fiat has a smaller scale than the BMW, and is surely older, since the wheels are more elaborated with white hubcaps. These cars (and all the other models) were made in many different colours and colours combinations.
Maybe not the best models, but something curious to talk about in this blog. If you have any information on this company, please don´t hesitate to leave a comment below. Thanks!
