1977 RANGE

The flexible plate and circular discs were introduced to produce more realistic models. The accessory sets 1A and 2A converted the 1 & 2 sets to the 2 & 3 sets respectively. Several parts were discontinued. Packaging/advertising was unisex showing both boys & girls (This caused sales resistance). The workbox was now the set 3 in a wooden box. The sets used the Prima Road Wheel. The set box sides were split between English & French in order to satisfy Canadian regulations which insisted on equal prominence of English and French. The conversion sets 1A & 2A continued to be available after 1978 as they appear in the Jan 1980 price list.
