A brief history of Johann Distler of Nuremberg, Germany:  

1895-1968

Founder: Johann Distler

Johann Distler/Johann Distler KG was founded in Nuremberg, Germany in 1895 and continued production until 1968. Dislter produced lithographed tin penny toys, comic and erratic action transportation toys.  

In 1917, Distler acquired Brown & Myer as a partner who eventually took over when Distler died in 1923. In 1935, they sold out to Ernst Volk. After the Second World War, Distler started producing electric trains and, later, electric toy cars. By the 1960’s the company could no longer compete with the larger brands like Germany’s Trix, and Marklin, and the British company Dinky Toys. Sadly, by 1962 all toy production by Distler was discontinued in Germany and the company was sold to a firm in Nivelles, Belgium. Until 1968, Distler continued to manufacture toys as Distler Toys S.A.
