Triang Spot On furniture was produced in 1960. The style of this furniture being the late 1950’s The furniture made from moulded plastic and metal. It was sold in individual boxes, with the ‘Triang’ and ‘Spot On’ Logos, on a pink and cream box. The Range also included ‘Dollies Home’ introduced in 1962, which consisted mainly of room sets. The boxes they were sold in were printed to represent the room, kitchen, bedroom etc. The ‘Triang’, ‘Spot On’ and ‘Dollies Home’ range continued until 1964.
As fashion and style move on so did Triang and in 1964, they launched a new range of furniture in collaboration with ‘Homes and Gardens’ magazine. This co-insided with the introduction of the ‘Jenny’s Home ‘ Room Boxes, many of them came ready furnished and could be joined together. Much of the furniture of the ‘Triang’ ‘ Spot On Range’, either changed in style or bright modern colours. Being made now completely of plastic, with the removal of the metal fittings. The packaging also changed with a move away from pink to blue, yellow, red and orange. With a smart new logo in a red and pink heart, with Jenny’s Home in the middle, and the words ‘the home that g-r-o-w-s around it. Individual items and small room sets, now on blister pack cards and room sets in plastic covered square flat boxes.
PLAY PEN 1041
This is my first piece of Triang Nursery Furniture. A lovely little playpen, you could say it comes in kit form as it has to be put it together.
I did manage to put it back into the box, with room to spare. Many of the boxes are a very tight fit, a wonder they survived.
A new discovery for me a Brown Play Pen. The railing on the play pen are the same size as on the cot, so you could actually mix and match if you wanted to.
PEDIGREE 8C COT 1032
Pedigree 8c Cot , this is a doll’s house version of a Pedigree doll’s cot.
The style of Triang cots I have seen before have been yellow with white drop sides, pink/purple with pink/purple drop sides, all with a bear motif. The one I have is yellow with brown bar sides, with a lamb motif. Comparing other pictures of Triang Cots on the internet, it looks correct, but still not sure. I think therefore that this must be a later model, as in ‘The Ultimate Book of Spot On Models Ltd.’, it states that the cots with yellow ends and a lamb motif were produced in the Jenny’s Home Range. It does not say anything about having brown drop sides.
The cot is made up of plastic parts, which slot together, with a metal mattress base. As it comes apart, the same as the Playpen, I am surprised that it came ready made in a box, not like the Playpen which squeezes into a small flat box.
This is once again a very made piece of furniture, although the side rails can be easily broken.
There is damage to the mattress, I though I had a spare one, but it does not fit and is thicker. Also it does not have the little pins to hold it in place on the metal frame.
And so another mystery to solve ….. and solve it I have …
The red mattress on the right is from a pink Triang Cot, it is the same size and style as the spare one I already had.
BABY’S BATH AND STAND 1110
This Baby’s Bath and Stand has to be the smallest piece of Triang Furniture I have ever seen, it is a wonder that any of these have survived.
The stand on this one is blue, but I have also seen them in white and pink. All I need now is to find a baby to put in it.
ROCKING HORSE 1042
In comparison to the baby’s bath the rocking horse is quite large. The rocking frame is red-painted metal, the horse is painted plastic. Very often the ears are broken, but luckily this horse has complete ears.
NOAH’S ARK 1040
This Ark is not as detailed as the one in the Catalogue.
