"The sio factory was founded in 1938 just before the Second World War
in a village called Vroomshoop in Overijssel (Dutch province)
sio stands for Speelgoed Industrie Overijssel
which means Toy Industry Overijssel
Most of the sio miniature shops were made during the 1950s
The sio doll houses however, date mostly from the 1970s
Some pieces of sio are included in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
In the fifties sio made wooden grocery stores and later substances wrappers,
complete with 'bales of fabric.
In the seventies, they made shops like small boutiques and later bigger boutiques
for teen dolls on the market, but made of cardboard and printed hard board.
In the last ten years of its existence sio made also dollhouses.
In the seventies, a part of the production was moved to Seiffen in the Ore Mountains.
In 1972 all shares were transferred to the British empire toys DCM (Dundee Combex-Marx) in the hope that through the larger outlets of the turnover could be increased.
In 1979, the foreign competition became so great
(from countries like the DDR,Taiwan,Czech Republic and Hungary)
and also from the fact of the increasing market of plastic toys
which became more and more popular then wooden toys
that the company decided to stop.
The staff was dismissed with effect, but from subsequent messages can be concluded that the company finally got a relaunch under the new parent company JW Spear and Sons PLC.
In 1982 the plant burned down in Vroomshoop and the entire production was lost.
Spear then brought the production of wooden toys over to the Homas factories in Assen, Netherlands.
