My question is: Which is the bigger/long vw split toy produced continuously during the 1938 - 1953 period?

Well, there are a lot of VW split toys produced of various sizes.
But I'm looking for the bigger produced during the same time of the real VW split era.
About a German toy manufacturer that produced the vw split from KdF period to 1953 year.

Leaving aside the special models produced during development of the KdF Wagen and also as promotional gifts, I mean about many German toy manufacturers at the time that tooled up and started producing their version of the KdF Wagens in miniature.

These are my conclusions. Please let me know if they are correct or if there are other models:

KDF period (1938 - 1945)
1) GÜNTHERMANN 26,8 cm
2) UNKNOWN METAL 25 cm
3) DISTLER KdF 23 cm

This is the podium of the biggest / long KdF product in my opinion.
But the GÜNTHERMANN model was no longer produced in the post war.
The same for the UNKNOWN METAL.
While the DISTLER model was produced after the war and till 50s.

So is the Distler model the bigger toy produced continuously from 1938 to 1953 as the real VW split??
Please let me know what you think. Thanks

Hi Andrea,

yes, The KdF Distler is the biggest VW split toy car which was produced between 1939 until 1953.

The biggest split beetle that was made post war is the Philip Niedermeier split, which measured 40 cm.
