(1930s?) -     

Merit Toys and Games was the brandname used by J&L Randall Ltd. of Potters Bar for their more mass-produced toys and novelties, typically inexpensive plastic toys, boardgames with "extras" and metal toy guns. Later the name became more strongly associated with the company's chemistry sets.


The oldest advert that we've identified in our archives for Merit so far is a World War Two ad from 1944, promising the return of Merit after the war. This suggests that the Merit brand may have been in use either during WW2's early years, before UK toy production was shut down (1939-) or earlier (1930s).
