Daisy Bungalow 1966-71. Dimensions: 23 inches [58 cm] wide, 11.5 inches [29 cm] deep and 12.5 inches [31.5 cm] high.
The smallest house in the Avon series. Also given the numbers TM7730 (ready assembled) and TM7735 (flat-packed, available in 1966 only) in the Tri-ang catalogues. The series is described in the caption to picture 66, previously. Photographed after restoration. All the stiles were missing in both window frames. They were replaced with card, painted to match the surviving original plastic frames. The original opening windows were missing. An attempt to make opening windows was unsuccessful, so the idea was abandoned, and the windows were simply glazed with acrylic sheet cut to size. The front door hinges were broken - the door has been re-hung using Glu-Dot substitutes. (It has been fixed to open outwards because of the way it's now furnished inside). Some of the printed paper flower decoration was very faded - this was repainted where needed with artists acrylics. The right side was more faded than the left - red highlights were added to the flowers to match the left side. Please see the next picture for a view of the interior of this model.

This looks lovely Julie, like new! It fell on its feet (base?!) when you bought it. The flowers look very well done.
Will we be seeing the inside soon?


Thank you, Zoe. It needed minimal work, really. I did very little with the flowers: there were just a few small patches where the paper was torn off, which I touched in with flesh pink, before adding those red highlights on the right side.

This is adorable..I love it.


The Daisy Bungalow is the smallest in the "Avon Series" the last houses produced by Tri-ang before the firm went out of business in 1971. I find them all really attractive - so bright and cheerful! I only have room for this one, sadly.

Did you buy replacement windows? If not, how did you replace the bars? Linda has a Broome with all the original perspex in the windows!
