The Biggest Structure Made of MERKUR

Toy production in Police nad Metují, in the Czech Republic, dates back to the year 1920 when Jaroslav Vancl founded the Inventor company, which produced toy construction sets of the same name. Back then, the metal parts of the Inventor construction sets were connected by metal hooks similar to those of scaffolding. In 1925, a new system was launched whereby the metal parts are connected by screws and M 3,5 nuts. This toy construction set, registered under the MERKUR trademark became very popular and keeps its original form till this day.
