Is the name LECO related/connected to LECCO in Italy? Or it is just a brand name?
Believe they were an American toy gun maker
Yes Toy Gunmaker in the 1950’s…
I have tried to find the full factory name of “LECO” but my computer does not seem able to differentiate between “LECO” and “LEGO.” It is clear the “LECO” has nothing to do with the Italian city of “LECCO,” where the main Fiocchi Factory is.
Does anyone know what the full, corporate or company name of “LECO” was?
I know this is old post but Leco is just a name. Was made by Mattel Toys Inc, El segundo, CA.
This is just speculation, but could this toy cartridge have been manufactured by
Leco Plastics, Inc.
130 Gamewell St.
Hackensack NJ 07601
for the Mattel toy company?
Leco was founded in 1946.
The speculation is that the gun and cartridge were in packaging that stated made by Mattel Toys Inc.
Perhaps they subcontracted but that will need deeper research of records from Mattel Inc., so I am leaving as Mattel right now. Perhaps yes Mattel made gun and Leco the toy cartridge.
