In the 1940s the British toy company created a series of 5 Disney themed die-cast models which they called the Salco Series and were promoted as the 5 Salco Disney Novelties. The models feature the main classic Disney characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck. Pluto is also featured pulling the Dairy Truck. We take a look at the five models including some sold prices at auction.
The models included: Mickey and Minnie’s Barrel Organ; Mickey’s Fire Brigade; Donald Duck’s Dairy with Pluto; Mickey and Minnie on the River and
Mickey and Donald’s Garden Set.

The series of models is delightful and showcases the early looks of Mickey, Minnie and Donald. The boxes are nice and add to the models greatly. There are different colourways within the model notable the Mickey and Minnie’s Barrel Organset which can be seen with red, bk]lue and green barrel organs. A fine set of 5 in very good boxes should cost £1,000 plus.
