Other information: NB: the set you receive may not be the identical one in the photo but one in a very similar condition -  this is part of a quantity of ex-shop stock we have acquired and would have been retailed during the mid to late 1960s. "In 1957, Karl Georg Kirk Kristiansen was appointed head of the plastics division and Gerhardt Kirk Christiansen was appointed head of the wood products division of the LEGO company.The following year, founder Ole Kirk Christiansen died at age 67. Godtfred Kirk Christiansen took over as head of the LEGO company in 1958. At this time there were 4 brothers in the LEGO company: Gerhardt, Johannes, Godtfred and Karl Georg.  Danish trademark records show that the LEGO company first registered the BILOfix name in 1959. It was in this year that the LEGO company decided to market all "non-brick" LEGO products under the BILOfix brand. Gerhardt Kirk Christiansen was the manager for this part of the production.  The name is said to represent "Billions of wooden toys".  The wooden beam product for which the BILOfix name is best known, was reportedly developed by Gerhardt at this time. On 4 February 1960, the LEGO department for wooden toy production burned down (for the third time). After much consideration, it was decided to discontinue production of wooden toys and to concentrate solely on plastic toys. As a result, two of the brothers; Karl Georg and Gerhardt decided to leave the LEGO company and start their own separate businesses." Source: - may be of some interest to a collector.
