The Story of Lines Bros. and Triang Toys.
Founded 100 years ago, Lines Bros. was once one of the world's largest toy manufacturers and employed hundreds of Merton residents.

The company played an important part in supporting the war effort during the 1940s and in the postwar era supplied famous toy brands from Sindy and Meccano, to Scalextric and Hornby.

Discover more about the colourful story of this award-winning firm and its famous clients at this illustrated talk by Heritage Officer, Sarah Gould.
