BAYKO in 'British Toys', November 1954

This is the first mention of BAYKO to appear in 'British Toys', the [then] new publication for the British and European toy trade.
'British Toys' first edition was the previous month, so this was an innovative step by Plimpton. this confidence was well placed, and 'British Toys' rapidly moved on from its cheap newsprint format to the full glossy print you might expect.
Worthy of note is the fact that 'British Toys' was printed in French and Spanish as well as English.
