Perhaps there has been a thread or article in the passed on this subject, but I have not been able to find it. Before the introduction of the name Nicky Toys by S. Kumar and Co in India, the same company made Dinky Toys under license for a short period. Due to the poor quality of these Dinky Toys, the license was withdrawn and the production continued under the new name.
All Nicky Toys are scarce, but the Indian made Dinky Toys are rare. I only have one boxed example which is shown here alongside the Nicky version. Both carry the original Dinky number 184. In the second picture the baseplates are shown. One with Dinky Toys lettering and one without.
Does anyone else have Indian made Dinky Toys?
