Tri-ang

About Tri-ang

*All items on this page are from the 1960s and are 1/16th scale.

*In the early 1960s Tri-ang brought out a Spot-On range of dolls house furniture and accessories which consisted of metal and plastic components. In fact the metal spiked legs on much of the furniture could easily take someone’s eye out and would most definitely not pass our stringent health & safety standards of modern times.

*In the mid 1960s the Spot-On range was phased out and the Jenny’s Home range was introduced in conjunction with the November 1965 issue of Homes & Gardens magazine. This range had no more pointed legs but child friendly alloy legs instead plus far more plastic components.

*Tri-ang furniture was actually quite expensive to buy in the 1960s and certainly not pocket money prices as were other brands available at the time. By the early 1970s this furniture range disappeared.

*Nowadays Tri-ang furniture and accessories are highly sought after and becoming very collectable.
