LANDFRIED TABAK VW BUS

One-piece plastic body, two-dimensional. The German tobacco producer Landfried issued 10 different carton collection boards with on each sheet 3-5 different cars of the era 1951-1952. In each pouch of tobacco or in each package of cigarettes 1 plastic 2-dimensional car was included. The cars had 2 pins in the back that fitted into the holes on the carton boards. The children of the tobacco buyers collected these on the carton boards. The board with the number 2 had the Ford Taunus De Luxe, the DKW Meisterklasse, the Opel Olympia, the Porsche 356 and the Volkswagen Transporter Bus. The card board measures 20,5 cm x 15 cm and the VW Bus measures 42 mm x 15 mm. The carton collection boards were stored in a carton box with a Merdedes on the front and the text: "Landfried Autotypen, Sammelwerk 1". This carton box came in 2 variations, both with a Mercedes on the front (see  enclosed pictures).

Please note that Landfried was not the manufacturer! Also known with "Haribo" markings and "Hansa Ruhm" markings. Haribo was and is a manufacturer of candy, whereas Hansa Ruhm produced margarine. Also used by WARTA soap; the models were stick into the soap with the pin on the back and featured 10 different models, among which the VW Beetle and the VW Bus.
