Toys from the Past is sponsored by!

Wednesday, January 25, 2017



I have a few interesting toys that I have been collecting over the years from which I know nothing at all. They cannot be identified since they have no manufacture marking. Despite searching the internet, I couldn´t find anything about them, so I changed my mind, and thought it may be better if I publish them now, and people reading this could help me identifying them.

There will be 11 toys (all 11 entries from January 2017), but I warn you: it is not an easy task to identify them. Are you ready for this challenge?

If I get hints and information, I´ll be updating the posts to add information about them. Thanks!
If you like the challenge, there are other toys in this blog waiting to be identified, click here to see all unidentified toys.

This is another Hong-Kongese toy from the mid to late 80s. It is, of course, a cheap toy, not a detailed scale model. It comes with a friction motor, like many other cheap cars from the 80s.

The base shows a very nice logo with a shark, and reference number 103. We know that the same cars were later made by the brand KY, and we have seen other models with the same wheels and structure (thanks Steve!). Other models from this series are a Renault 5 or a Toyota Celica Racer, although these are not marked, not even with a country of origin, so I assume the KY are newer than these. Which is the company with the shark logo that made the car before KY?

The car is made completely in plastic (except for the friction motor and axles) and has some paper stickers applied.

Additional information: Bought in a flea market in Austria.
