TT Industries - TTI of Stoke On Trent

Teddy Toys logo

TT Industries operated around 1946-47 and were based in Stoke-on-Trent. The company was previously called Teddy Toy Co Ltd. and before World War II had made soft toys. The 1922 and 1929 British Industries Fair listings show Teddy Toy Co as a London company manufacturing Teddy Bears and soft toys with offices at 45 Golden Lane, and 78 Fann Street, London, EC1 - this may not be the same company.

TTI ceased trading around 1948 - the London Gazette of 8 October 1948 carried a notice to creditors as shown in the image below...

The company is known to have produced a saloon car (reminiscent of an Allard), a sports car and a streamlined locomotive. The saloon car and sports car are known to come in two tone as well as a single colour scheme and have an unusual "axle-less" wheel assembly. The metal models TTI produced can be identified by the distinctive "manufacturer's mark" on the castings... at first glance this mark looks like like a circle with some lines in it... this is in fact a stylised TTI if one looks closely at it with a magnifying glass.
