SUBBUTEO was created by Peter Adolph in 1946 and the first SUBBUTEO set contained goals made of wire with paper nets, a ball and cardboard playing figures on bases made from buttons weighed down with lead washers.
These initial figures were made from flat cardboard, known later to collectors as "flats". Also provided was chalk and instructions on how to mark out the pitch.
In 1961 Peter Adolph introduced a three-dimensional hand painted plastic figure and after several design modifications, this figure evolved into the classic "heavyweight" player.
In 1980 the new lightweight figure was introduced.
