Efficiently helped by dedicated and passionate collectors, The Museum rachieved a collection of toys iunder the brand of Air France, or essential companies (UTA, TAI, Air Inter, Cidna).
Both childish symbols and contemporary reflections of the Company, the games Air France take very different forms:
- Games of route
- Games of patience
- Playing cards
- Models to be built
- Dolls and figurines...
During the golden age of toys in sheet steel, the JOUSTRA firm made an agreement with Air France allowing it to put the "shrimp" on all its aeronautical realizations, what was sometimes translated by creations taken away enough from the reality. From Constellation, which was certainly the toy plane in sheet steel the most spread, the Company was more demanding on the allegiance of the reproductions.
A book on these toys "Games and Toys of the Sky" was realized by Frédéric Marchand. This book is on sale at the Air France Museum at Librairie
