Other Information: interesting old and fairly rare puzzle constructed in plywood - "Hilary Page was born in 1904 and sadly committed suicide in 1957. During the years 1932 to 1957 he changed the face of the British toy industry and created some of the classic pre-school toys played with by children today. Perhaps his greatest claim to fame however is the patent for the ‘interlocking building brick’ later to be adopted and modified to become the famous LEGO brick. Hilary Page was a well-known writer, broadcaster and designer of children’s educational toys. In 1932 he founded Kiddicraft in Purley, Surrey with £100. Kiddicraft initially made wooden toys, but through his frustration with the qualities of painted wood, Page started to experiment with plastics. In 1937 he made the first plastic “Kiddicraft ‘Sensible’ Toys” initially under the BRI-PLAX name. The first edition of his book, ‘Playtime in the First Five Years’ published in 1938 is a valuable insight into the start of the pre-school toys industry that we know today." Source Hilary Page Toys, we are not entirely sure of its age but would suggest circa 1950s to 1960s - may be of interest to a collector.
