HISTORY

Tinman specialized in the manufacture of containers to carry ice (typical production of Ibi, winter snow was compacted in ice to be exploited the remainder of the year), Rafel Pay Pic had widened his range towards various domestic accessories. He will create under the pressure of his three sons "Pay Hermanos, S.A." (Paid brothers) in 1912. Another workshop was created at the same time, which became "Rico S.A.", then in 1925 the "Juguetes y Estuches" by former workmen of Paya SA. Thus Ibi will be regarded as the great Spanish producing center of toys.

Well, whis is all that I can say about the Rico mark. If you have other informations, I will collect them with pleasure in order to complete this document. Particularly, if you can tell me why the names Rico and Sanson are associated, and later Rico and tonka.
