Boomaroo Toys

Posted by: Pedalmania in Member Blogs

Hi Everyone

Welcome to my first blog hope you enjoy

Boomaroo Toys made a range of pressed steel vehicles and other toys in competition with other Australian manufacturers such as Wyn-toy and overseas toy companies such as the Buddy-L

The name derives from a combination of the words 'boomerang' and 'kangaroo' and their trademark depicted a kangaroo perched on a boomerang, above the words 'Made in Australia'.

Operating as Boomaroo  Products Pty Ltd in Sydney from 1954 to the 1970s. By the mid-1960s they had become associated with Artlay Manufacturing Company Pty Ltd.

 Boomaroo made cars, trucks, tractors trains -- as well as novelty toys, robots, kitchen toys etc.

...

I will never forget my surprise when I saw a small photo of a metal airplane made by Boomeroo Toys. It was described as an Avro Lancaster but I could not identify its features. I'd appreciate any information on sheet metal toy planes, tin or steel, made in Australia, or those made in Japan for export to Australia.

I hope that was you as a child... could you add some of these to the Gallery or maybe write another article on them with some examples?
