Early LEGO 1:87 Scale Toys


In the late 1950s and early 1960s, LEGO produced several small models to go with its various town plan sets. These figures were molded in one piece and hand-painted in various colors. They were packaged by tacking them inside a cardboard box with spots of glue. As a result, they are sometimes found with glue residue and bits of paper on the bottoms of the wheels.

The parts were painted by home-workers, who apparently chose their own combinations. The assortment in each box also varied, with a mix of motorcyclist and bicyclists.
