About Barton

*A Barton & Co.(Toys) Ltd started trading officially in 1945, as soon as the war finished.

*The first official trademark of Bartons was an ink stamp of a diamond with the letter A B & Co. Then in 1949 this was replaced with a label for a time.

*Bartons flourished, using other suppliers for certain items eg.Barrett & Son metal items, Grecon Dolls, Kaybot plaster food.

*In 1975 the Caroline’s Home Range was brought out. By now the use of plastic was extensive.

*In 1984 Barton was bought out by Lundby Ltd.
