Cragston NGS Air Control Tower

Postby mthomeidaho » Fri Oct 20, 2017 7:16 pm

Are we familiar with this crazy little airport tower, airplane and helicopter in a key-less wind up carousel like package from NGS Japan? Ingenious linkage.
Of course it was distributed by Cragstan. Measures 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Oh yes, the little red convertible that also goes around is a charmer!

This is a great little toy!

I think S&E (Suzuki and Edwards) manufactured it, then partnered with NGS (Japanese Trading Company ?) & Cragstan (U.S. Importer) for distribution.

Alas thanks for posting the photo - the aircraft are even simpler-looking than some of the 25 cent toys I have. The tower is good-looking. It looks like one of those panoramic rotating restaurants.

That is one of several things I learned from browsing the "Danefield" Alphadrome-Home of the Robots message board. For several years nobody knew what NGS stood for. Then, all of a sudden, apparently one of the collectors did some research and posted the answer there.
