Chad Valley “Happy Families”
Chad Valley Toys have given pleasure to eight generations of children. Several versions of “Happy Families”, which originated in the mid-nineteenth century, were published by Chad Valley Games over the years, with designs by popular artists. Chad Valley received a Royal Warrant in 1938. For the next fourteen years all Chad Valley Toys were marked “Toymakers to H. M. The Queen”. It was later amended to read “Toymakers to H. M. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother” when Princess Elizabeth became Queen in 1952.
