Andre Citroen had a couple toy makers produce very exact replicas of his vehicles, and John shared the ones he's collected with me this morning

Between 1925 and 1940, Citroen worked with a  CIJ ( Compagnie industrielle du jouet) and JRD ( Jouets Rabier et Donnot - toys Rabier and Donnot ) to produce exact replicas of his cars, those were produced in 1:10 or 1:15 scale

Those toys were pressed sheet metal with clockwork mechanism and had a brake, they were also electric with front light, the steering column was functional and with opening door, seats and very detailed

Thanks John!
