COPIES & CLONES

Made in Mexico

 

Hecho en Mexico

Mexico has quite an extensive toy history, but their vintage toys are relatively unknown outside the country. Being a Major Matt Mason collector, I have a few Capitán Meteoro versions of that toy line, produced under licence by CIPSA. And in the course of time, a few other Mexican copies of toys known to us from other origins have surfaced. Cheap toys were popular in Mexico as elsewhere, and so it's not that surprising to find that Spacex toys too have their Mexican counterparts. Sadly there are no markings on them, so no makers to investigate in hopes of finding others. And no knowing what else may turn up from that country either..!
