The DS interpretation by Morellet Guérineau (MG) was a great hit, particularly in France.

In Germany the MG pedal cars were sold by Paidi. They had their own catalogue derived from the original MG catalogue. The DS was made of solid steel, 1,20 meters (1,31 yards or 3,94 feet) long and easily recognized by the initials printed on the three-bar plastic steering wheel and license plate. The little license plate is black and indicates the year of production, e.g. 19-MG-60. In the early seventies, this changed and since then all MG pedal cars had the same number plate; 21-MG-75. An MG DS was always styled like the early DS models. The first cars appeared around 1958. The most luxurious type had a little wooden seat covered with plastic, reflectors on the rear end (like the older DS models) and had a little white, spray-painted parcel shelf. Even the tail-lights are styled. Other accessories included a little MG sticker on the hood of the car, an antenna, dashboard sticker, illuminating headlights, horn, front window, chain driven wheels and white tires.

The cheapest model didn’t have chain driven wheels, but instead had bars that turned the rear axle. It didn’t have a covered seat, electric horn, styled tail-lights or reflectors, it had a metal strip as bumper (later on all MG’s were styled this way), there was no dashboard sticker , antenna, hub caps on the rear wheels, it had black tires, non working tail-lights didn’t even have a front window. Actually it was a sorry looking car. Besides these two models, there were two other MG models on the market, each with fewer accessories than the most luxurious one.  The cars came in light blue, red yellow and Bahamas yellow.

Later on, the MG’s were altered. In 1965 the little license plate became white with black writing. A special version appeared in 1966 with a sound effect in the trunk that imitates the sound of a DS. I don’t think it was a success because this version is only made in 1966. Extremely rare indeed! In 1967 these cars got a smaller front window and a rib in the hood to make it more solid. The electric horn was replaced with one that’s called in French Pouet pouet! The differences between the luxurious and the less luxurious models became less and less. Towards the end of the sixties, a funny version appeared on the market. On this model the bonnet could be opened, showing a little imitation plastic engine. The bonnet could be locked with a revolving double chevron. The last of the MG’s had a little sticker DS21 and had a new type steering wheel. After this model production stopped.
