Benbros (London) Ltd was founded by brothers Jack and Nathan Beneson and operated from north London (Walthamstow). They produced several ranges of toys such as the TV Series (the boxes resembled a 1950's television set) later re-named as Mighty Midgets: both were similar in size to the Matchbox '1 - 75' Series.
The larger scale models came under the brand name of Qualitoys (some were re-issues of Timpo Toys), while the company's Zebra Toys were more accurate with added features such as jewelled headlights, windows and interiors. Benbros also produced hollow cast metal Robin Hood, cowboy and Indian figures and toy soldiers.
The company ceased toy production in 1965.
