Toy Brands and Manufacturers


Wend-al were founded in Dorset in 1948. Though their pieces are displayed here in the Museum alongside lead figures, and sold alongside them in shops at the time, Wend-Al's figures didn't use the Hollow Cast method but were cast from solid aluminium.

Despite this difference, much like the the Hollow Cast figure producers, the company was unable to compete with plastic figures and the final set of Wend-al figures was released in 1956.
