This yellow-and-blue truck from the 1950s is inscribed with “Stone Industry.” Its stones are represented as miniature wooden cubes. With six rubber wheels, it was one of the longest models. ADO produced a variety of toy trucks, which differentiated in terms of function or cargo. It was a popular type of toy, reflecting the environment in which it was made. Some of the trucks were named after real companies, such as BOUWBEDRIJF. This was a way of acclimating its worker-patients to working life outside of ADO, as well as teaching children about production.
