The Walking Farmyard was issued in several years and in different combinations. The Tractor and Hay Trailer from the 1964 set are the rare items to find. Another R&L cereal toy set, this one also appeared at various times in countries including Ireland, Japan, Holland and Austria.
Neddy the Horse was the first issue in 1962 just by himself, and then later in 1969 as a part of a re-issued set. I’d note that Craig’s book is a bit ambiguous as he mentions that Neddy was not part of the 1964 series, but then annotates the comparison picture as 1962 vs 1964 which I think is a typo.
My collection of these models all appear to be a mix of 1964 and 1969 series. The Neddy’s are all 1969 as they have the extra locating pins in the body. The other models were all acquired from the one collection and based on the memories of the previous owner, they were all pre 1970.
I have included a few of the models in this series that I have that are missing parts. I am always interested in buying complete kits, parts of models, and your old kitchen drawer of cereal toys. (Was your kitchen drawer the 3rd one down? You know the one with everything in it that did not belong somewhere else.)
