Femepito Construction Sets
and
Mechanika Construction sets

Femepita and Mechanika were both virtually identical Meccano-like construction systems. They were made in Hungary from the 1950s with Mechanika lasting until at least 1985. As Femepito may be slightly earlier, could Femepita have been the predecessor of Mechanika, with possibly the name change being the result of a change of manufacturer?
