MG-1-A1 This early garage came in two versions, red garage and yellow base or Yellow garage with red base. Early boxes had the logo on the front of Raphael Lipkin (Pippin Toys) as the garages were first produced by for Lesney. This was because at that time Lesney had no expertise in casting plastics.. This was soon resolved, due probably to Lesney liking to be masters of their own quality control and seeing their profit go to another company. The mould was sold to Lesney who then produced it but the box no longer had the Lipkin logo on. Pippin went on to produce their own version as seen here called the 'FLYOVER GARAGE'
