As we mentioned on page 707, Tri-ang made a group of wooden toys after the War for smaller children under the names Teachem Toys, Tinkle Toys and Toddler Toys.  At that stage we couldn’t illustrate Teachem Toys or list them in the model list, but we now have three examples, together with another Tinkle Toy.  We are still looking out for Toddler Toys.
