About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

P is for Raphael Lipkin...no; Pippin...no; Plastron or...Modern Toys!

How many brands did this company use?! In their day (the 'pioneer' period of plastics for toys) as big as Tudor Rose or Kleeware, this set dates more toward the end, judging by the packaging?

I photographed this years ago (2007), and it's not in my collection to inspect further, so I'll let the pictures tell the story...suffice to say it takes baking-soda toys to the next level! Approximately 100mm figure?
