BAYKO in 'Toy Trader', September, 1962

This was the fifth feature, which mentions BAYKO, to appear, during the MECCANO era, in 'Toy Trader', a leading publication of the day for the British toy trade.
'Toy Trader' article, September, 1962, first page
The timing of this ”advertising puff” is clearly to communicate to the UK toy trade the availability of the new range of MECCANO era BAYKO parts, integral to set #15 and conversion set #14C, which had only been introduced in the previous month : -
New Parts
For Bayko Builders
The largest of the Bayko building outfits, No. 15, which has only been introduced this year, contains several entirely new parts to enable larger and more varied models to be built.
Among the new parts are a dormer roof and window, complete with glazing. The dormer window can, of course, be used separately. Other new parts are a boarded roof end, a waney-edge roof end, a display shelf, a French window, a shop window and a pantile roof. These new parts are, of course, also in outfit 14C, which will covert outfit 14 into outfit 15.
This new Bayko outfit, retailing at £3 15s., is manufactured by Meccano Limited.

There is then some script relating to the latest DINKY release, which has drawings of two of the new BAYKO parts slotted into the middle of it, supported by the script : -
Illustrated above the new Bayko boarded roof end and below the dormer window.
The DINKY script then resumes.
I'll give full credit to Mr. MECCANO for this one - it's not their fault that the article was clumsily edited [under selling the full new range] and split across two pages, its mention alone would have been valuable.
