This classic, matchbox-sized toy fascinates because of its simplicity and the wide variety of possible constructions with seven rough building blocks with stamped designs. S.F. Fischer Oberseiffenbach, a factory founded in 1850 that manufactured toys and wooden goods in the Erzgebirge mountains, started to produce this first building set fitting in a matchbox in 1908. It was registered in the tradmark register of the Imperial Tradmark Office in accordance with the Trademark Protection Law of 12 May 1894. Der kleine Schwede survived almost 100 years of German building set history and all its crises. Nowadays, it is still produced and sold by SINA.
