Remco Beaver Patrol Catalog

Remco Beaver Patrol Catalog

I recently found this sell sheet (that I believe is from 1970 for a line Remco unironically dubbed “Beaver Patrol.” It was before my time, but it’s so well-designed and charming.

I’m going to assume that a lot of these toys employed recycled tooling. Remco may have been the leading “Label Slap” toy company before the name was sold to Azrak-Hamway in 1973.

Also, I want to highlight the glib use of the word “Mod” on toys of that era. What exactly makes a pup tent “Mod?”Beaver Patrol

I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without an official Beaver Patrol Utility set! I must remedy this post haste.

I’m not sure how well these toys sold but I’d like to think Remco was also working on an “Official Bikini Inspector” line which included a box of bikinis, a magnifying glass and a rubber stamp. I stole this joke from Bruce McCollough.

    I too thought of that KITH bit immediately upon seeing “Beaver Patrol” LOL.
    A tent can be Mod in the same way a parasol can be HiFi.
