These toy figures are from a collection of 56 Smurfs which used to ‘ride’ in a Meccano ferris wheel to amuse Sydney Meccano enthusiast Malcolm Booker’s children during the 1970s. The Smurfs came to the Museum with a large collection of Meccano and Meccano copies (including Ezy-Bilt, Buzz, Bral, Temsi and Jolei-Spiele) assembled by the late Sydney mining engineer, Malcolm Booker. As a child Malcolm was a keen Meccano builder but became both an avid Meccano collector and builder as an adult.
