BAYKO in 'Games and Toys', December 1959

This is more of an announcement than an ”advertising puff”, but this was the formal record of the MECCANO takeover of BAYKO in 'Games and Toys', the leading publication of the day for the British toy trade. This announcement was made in the same month in 'British Toys' and a month later in 'Toy Trader'

The text itself is short and sweet : -
”Meccano Acquire BAYKO”
”Meccano Ltd, have acquired the entire share capital of the Plimpton Engineering Co. Ltd, manufacturers of the famous Bayko Constructional Sets. It is their intention to redesign and represent this popular product. We are informed, however, that the basic principles will be fully maintained and further details will be announced at their trade exhibition at the Grosvenor Hotel (adjoining Victoria Station) in February.”
