In 1904 Christian Hausser and his sons Max and Otto founded the HAUSSER company, although it initially was named Müller & Freyer. Starting from 1912 the company was renamed into O&M Hausser. They carried the trade name Elastolin. In the 1930's the company moved to Neustadt bei Coburg. Like all toy producers, they had to stop production in 1943 by order of the NAZI regime and started again in 1947. 

One piece hollow clay VWs with wheels and some body detailing painted in silver which came with The KdF HAUSSER Game “PASS AUF”. The size and shape is identical to the games pieces of the board game DEIN KDF WAGEN, but those game pieces are ceramic. The box art showed a light blue KdF driving fast with a happy driver! Except for 2 KdF cars, the other game pieces were 4 little motorcycles. The game board was very colorful and showed a city plan where cars of different makes would drive around. The dimensions of the game plan are 81 x 45 cm. The box is 47 x 36 cm.

The instructions are printed on the inside of the box lid in the old German writing.

An earlier version of this specific box contained 6 metal game pieces; none of them a VW.
