RIBEIRINHO was founded in 1905 by José Teixeira in Guimaraes/Portugal. It is unclear what they produced prior to WWII but after the WWII they produced a very large assortment of cheap plastic products such as toys. They manufactured many household appliances and other products. They also copied some German WIKING 1/87 scale models, like the VW Kombi Barndoor Bus.

A two-piece plastic VW Kombi Barndoor Bus with solid windows.  The top section has fair details of the windshield, four side windows and the enlarged front section VW emblem. The lower section has details of inset headlight circles, some with a dab of silver paint, and front bumper (no rear bumper). The lower section forms the plain looking chassis and the plastic wheels and metal axles attached to the chassis. The chassis usually has molded the number 15.
