1968 Spacex launch advert

The December 1968 issue of British toy trade magazine Games & Toys saw the proud announcement of the brand new Spacex range, to be unveiled at the forthcoming Harrogate International Toy Fair the next month.

The joint presentation by Lipkin and Rovex must have been due to Lipkin's involvement with the three larger Spacex toys next to Rovex' offer of the smaller vehicles, all of which were made available through the Rovex Wholesale Dept.

The mention of "nationwide advertising" is tantalising to say the least - so far we haven't found anything along those lines yet... (research opportunity here! :)
