Dolly's Furniture
I recently picked this up on New Zealand on-line auction site. Five boxes of Protex plastic Dolly's Furniture, made by Plastic Moulders (NZ) Ltd, Auckland. The box is the same as the Kleeware box so I am assuming this firm had the New Zealand licence.

That could well be, Julie. We might discover which through toy trade journals - I looked through some issues of the Australian, New Zealand and Southern Equatorial Sportsgoods, Canvas Goods and Toy Retailers Journal recently, and saw ads saying things like 'Plasticraft now holds the manufacturing and distributing licence for X company'. Links to UK companies are perhaps more likely - Empire and all, but there certainly were links with the US too.


Thanks Rebecca and Julie for your input into the licensing matter. It makes it all very hard to work out where things are from and who made them doesn't it. If I didn't have the boxes to say they were made in New Zealand we probably would have never known.

They - or the Kleeware equivalents - were often sold with the Mettoy metal dolls house, which is 1/24th scale.


Thanks Rebecca for the information. It looks about 1/24th scale to me.

Kleeware got their licence from Renwal in the USA - Protex may have had the rights direct from Renwal.

A super collection, Sharee.

No, definitely too small for my Toyworks.

Wouldn't that make them perfect for the Toyworks?

Just thinking about scale. I'm not very good on scale but these might be more like 1/24th than 1/16th.

Are these staying in the boxes or are they going in the Toyworks house?

Smashing collection.


They will definitely be coming out of their boxes to reside in a house or be displayed somewhere. They might be a bit small for the Toyworks house though.

What scale is the furniture?
It seems to be a mix of several makes that we know, kleeware, marx, renwal etc.
Lovely to have boxed sets.


1/16th I think. A chair is a bit over one and a half inches.

Wonderful to have complete sets *and* the boxes! A great buy. I think you must be right, that it was made under licence from Kleeware.
