About Me

My photo
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

The company is one of the many new names cropping-up (written summer 2016) on Alibaba and other platforms, adopting the new Chinese directive to create domestic brand image rather than just sub-contract generics for Western traders, although it appears to have established a relationship with Magic Source in the 'States. This Company is reported to specialise in games and 'game sets' for adults and children, toys and leisure products.

Estimated sales of $10M-US and a staff of 402 puts it in the medium to large bracket. All information taken from dodgy click-bait/aggregator or subscription sites found through Google. There are several other 'Ningbo' plants in crafts, toys and plastics, so probably a State-owned co-op of some kind?

ZZ - ZZ Riesen - ZZ Riesen Farm - ZZ Riesen Zoo

Schnelsen, Hamburg, DE 22457, West Germany - via Hong Kong

Flourished 1973-1990's

See also:
R. Dakin & Company (San Francisco, California, USA)
Skyline Inc. (P.O. Box 61, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA)

Herr Ingo Roggatz set up as an importer (US - 'jobber') and/or registered the ZZ logo of two superimposed Z's in the - then - West Germany on the 19th of May, 1973, the trademark was awarded on the 4th March 1975. The company may be extant, but the registration of the trademark has lapsed or been surrendered - "Registration Cancelled"?

Mr Roggatz (or his successor) now seems to be trading as Nordblume GmbH a floristry and giftware wholesaler. He originally imported toys, gifts and general home-ware, a good deal of which came from the - then - British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, latterly just 'China'. Generics were overprinted or ink-stamped with the ZZ logo, and two lines carried the Riesen prefix; Riesen Farm and Riesen Zoo, as a range. The 60mm Wild West were mould-marked ZZ in raised letters, as was some of the Riesen animal range.

A debate about the graphics of the header-cards on these bags is ongoing; there were three styles (two farm - numbered and unnumbered; and one zoo), they all bearing a more than passing resemblance to the earlier packaging of Storck Riesen Schocolade, small chocolate-covered toffees.

The similarities between:

·         Names (Riesen)
·         Graphics (outlined balloon-font and squashed balloon-font lettering)
·         Target market (children and/or their  pocket money)
·         Time (1970's) and . . .
·         Market locations (Germany and the USA - also fans of the edible Riesens!)

is beyond coincidence, the only question is whether there was a link between ZZ and Storck or just some clever scamming by ZZ.

Increasingly it looks as if ZZ were deliberately trying to link their product to the chocolate candies, although a publicity or 'premium' link can't yet be ruled-out, particularly when you consider that Storck were also shipping their toffees to Hong Kong, where the toy products were coming from.

The US issues were handled by R. Dakin (who claimed to have "Exclusive distribution in USA…") and Skyline Inc. They both also claimed the products were made (and 'Hand Painted') in West Germany, when they were in fact HK knock-offs. Dakin may only have handled the Farm, but Skyline handled both.

The fact that one claimed exclusive rights is probably explained by the way territories were divided-up in the US market, one taking the West Coast salesmen (Dakin), the other the East Coast (Skyline), it's easy to see how Dakin - to impress customers - would make a claim they knew to be incorrect, as they also knew their bags would never been seen next to Skylines'. It should be noted that the stickers on both sets of imports clearly came from the same (German or HK?) source.

Skyline were a jobber in similar vein to ZZ, importing/carrying inflatable beach/play furniture, Halloween trick-or-treat bags, Japanese-made train sets, 'Shrinky-Dinks' and such-like.

Dakin were probably similar at the time, also sourcing stuffed toys and teddy bears, however they went on to make a fortune off the back of Garfield the cartoon cat merchandise licenses and became a major manufacturer of soft toys, famously commissioning the Dakin Building, on the San Francisco Bay in Brisbane, California…well, it's 'famously' if you're also a student of architecture or Star Wars!

Among ZZ's other toys were tin-plate Christmas tree decorations, some ex-Giant product (Wild West) and copies of British and European 'Cowboys & Indians' (Native Americans) in both 54 and 60mm, these were above the usual HK quality - as were the Riesen range - but if ZZ were dealing with pan-national jobbers like Dakin, Skyline and the Rosenberg's Giant, that's not so surprising.

5 & 10 Corps - Five-and-dime Corps

Austin, Texas, USA (defunct)

Ed Poole - Founder/owner
All details taken from Rodney's Dimestore website (see link below)

The figures are quite rare as they were only ever traded, not sold, although a Ron Eccles does produce them for retail now apparently, although I couldn't find him on the 'net. Dealers do carry them occasionally and both a history of the moulds and the odd figure will be found on the below link to Rodney's Dimestore, from where this listing was obtained.

I'm assuming they are 54mm/60mm whitemetal solids in a 'dime-store' style with larger accessories in resin. Most figures were available in campaign hat, tin helmet ('Brodie' or British pattern), or peaked service caps.
