Quite rough. Maybe just made to contain and display the sweets.

Something like this, filled with sweets, would have been a great Christmas or birthday present; I always loved it when there was something left to play with after the contents were gone.

Me, too. Even Easter egg boxes with cut-outs were good!

It seems likely that this shop and items like the small trucks seen in the film were primarily novelty containers for sweets - great for the Christmas market. The dolls houses, farms and forts appear more as toys in their own right. (I wonder if they came with a packet of sweets tucked inside, as a bonus? It seems likely).

I should imagine that Victory Toys were less expensive than the big brands, such as Triang. (And their finish could be pretty rough, too, at times!).

Was thinking that when I see Victory across the front.
