This doesn't look like any wooden box I'm familiar with. But that doesn't mean much, new boxes seem to come out of the wood work all of the time. ;) This seem to be one poorest document topics of the early era.
Random guess is that's a kindergartner set or a retail/sales men's box. What are the dimension of the box? It also looks like there is something on the lid. Is that anything? If you're looking for info about the parts you've highlighted I can tell you about most of them.
Thanks so much, any info would be very welcome. Its measurements are 64cm wide 48cm deep and 17cm across. The handle is off centre by a few cm but now that I think about it it may be that way for carrying it? it has 22 compartments also. I don't think there was ever a pull out draw like the ones I've seen. The label you see in the photos was the price tag from the charity shop I got it from (£19.99 hehehe). I've had a very close look at the lid an it may have had something glued in the centre at one point (lego label maybe?)
There is a photo of 2 clearish 2by2s joined, any clue what they were for? Also the white plate with the wheel axels attached, what are they for??One last thing, the doors with the fish printed on them, what set were they from?? Thanks so much Ive been looking everywhere for info on the box. Oh whats a kindergartner set?
Again many thanks
Regarding those other pieces, posting images to the "Help Identifying Parts" thread would probably get you the quickest response.
Tractor and trailer 304 for the nylon coupling. Look steps 7 and 8.
Delivery Truck 333 for the wheel holder steering assembly.
A kindergartner set was education set for the class room aimed young school aged kids, basically pre-Dacta. In the 50s and 60s the numbers were 700K (K for kindergartner). As with any of the 700 series don't be fooled into thinking this is a single set. They are multiple sets that share the same set number. They changed year to year and country to country.
Here are a small selection of LEGO boxes from my Unofficial LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors 2800 page guide as computer desktop download...
The only wooden boxes that ever had a handle were the USA/Canada Samsonite LEGO 750 and 7100 Educational Sets, with plastic Samsonite handles.
