Rico

Spain, 1922-1964. Toys made by Rico, a company founded by some former Paya employees in 1922, were similar to that made by Paya, starting with tin toys and moving into plastic products in the 1950s.

A typical characteristic of Rico's toy cars is that they tend not to be moulded in their final color but are spray painted like die-casts so that they resemble more diecast model cars instead of made of plastic. Rico and Paya both made many SEAT models cars.

Hello, I have a Rico wind-up type trotter type horse & trap. The box is in poor condition however it has Trotterdor on it. Is there anywhere I can find anything about it. I believe it’s from the early sixties
I'm sorry, I can't find anything on your toy... If you're on Facebook, you could post it in the group: "Tin Toys And Vintage Toys" to see if someone knows more about your toy.
