The history of the James Bond 007 Secret Agent Attaché Case

In 1963, NYC-born Ben Kinberg and his wife went out for dinner and a trip to the cinema where they watched From Russia with Love, the recently released second movie in the 007 series. Ben enjoyed the film and was especially impressed with the gadgets, most of all Bond’s attaché case created by Q. He thought about how children would like to roleplay as the British secret agent and came up with the idea of a toy version of the case which he presented to one of the leading toy companies of the 1960s, Multiple Toymakers AKA Multiple Product Corp. Multiple successfully won the licensing rights from the 007 film makers and the James Bond 007 Secret Agent Attaché Case went on sale in 1965. Currently the case can still be found on eBay.

As the exclusive manufacturer of 007 toys in that era, the company went on to develop an entire line of James Bond toy gadgets. In the early 1980s American Plastic Equipment, Inc. purchased the assets and rights of Multiple Toymakers and this included the tooling and product rights of the original Bond toys.

Its sister company American Classic Toy, Inc has now created this homage reissue using the original moulds under the original Intellectual Property Rights, to the original specifications, brought to current safety and technological standards.

The set is available on the 007 Store UK/EU £495 and 007 Store US for $595.
