Many children will not believe it but there was a world without Lego!
And to prove it, Wimborne Model Town has a new exhibition called Life Before Lego, which has been opened by the Mayor of Wimborne, Cllr Kelly Webb.
Tracing the history of Britain’s building toys with names such as Bayko and Minibrix, the new attraction also includes model dioramas of 1950s and 1960s Spot On cars, Minic roadways and Triang Hornby trains.
A spokesman for the volunteer run charity attraction commented: “Life Before Lego is a unique celebration of British building toys, an educational exhibition of models in a model town.”
The new display is open every day – together with the 1/10th scale streets of 1950s miniature buildings, with no booking required.
