Happynak toys

In 1915 Paton, Calvert & Co. Ltd. launched simple construction toys assembled without bolts and nuts, followed in 1920 by metal-kitchen, dining and tea service, beach buckets, piggy banks, acrobatic clowns and bowling sets. This toy company also manufactured the metal Happynak toys.


In 1935 the Happynak toys were printed with Mickey and Minnie Mouse designs. The factory area was reduced in 1932, and again in 1934 and 1935. By the time the war began, the company had ceased all activities.

Not sure about this particular one, but try the 'sold listings' link in the description and maybe you'll find similar ones.

Happynak Series, Made in England Tea set with Mickey Mouse and a Duck that looks like Donald Duck but in a red belted top. Please would you know who the character is ? or did Donald Duck start off wearing red?Am thinking of selling - based in UK.Regards Tricia
It must be Donald because Happynak didn't use any other characters besides Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck, but I could be wrong. In the beginning of his 'career', Donald wore a red top as you can see for example on this Happynak bucket.
