The 1967 Airport Cereal Toys Series was a clip together set issued in a range of 6 colours and 10 models including 6 aircraft. The same moulds were used in Kit-o-rama and Snap-a-Roos sets much later and also added white plastic to the mix. With the exception of the white colour, the later issues are easily mistaken for the original issued models. Note that the later white colour models will not include a bus which was not re-issued.
Referencing Craig Halls Breakfast Barons, Cereal Critters and the Rosenhain & Lipmann legacy, page 140 the models in the series were as follows.
- Fuel Tanker and Methanol Trailer
- Fire Tender
- Tractor and baggage trailer, and the rare aircraft towing hook
- Bell Helicopter
- Boeing 707
- Cessna 172
- Fokker Friendship
- Boeing 727
- Bac-sud Concorde
My collection of this series is relatively small and I am constantly looking for parts, pins, wheels, etc. If you any any of these cereal toys for sale or swap please get in touch.
