Maybe it's that snazzy silver logo or maybe it's the nostalgia I feel for my childhood Lundby dollhouse. 😏
But I recently developed a new appreciation for the 1980s Lundby transformer produced by Brio.
The "installation" instructions say the transformer is intended for use with "the following Lundby houses and extensions: 6001 - Original House, 6002 - Gothenburg House, 6050 - Gothenburg Extension, 6040 - Stockholm House, 6041 - Stockholm Extension, 6052 - Garage Extension."
Interesting that the 6001 model is called the "Original House" and the 6002, also known as the Salame & Signor or "frog" house, is called the "Gothenburg House."
At the top right of the instructions is the BRIO logo with a Wisconsin address.
Currently at that same address is an Internet fulfillment, e-commerce support, and product distribution company. Long gone are the days when Lundby and its distributors had a strong presence in the U.S.! 😢
