French manufacturer of tin toys and magic lanterns from 1886 till 1917. Carette learned the making of fancy toy magic lanterns through visiting the factory of August Lapierre.
With the help of a wealthy Bavarian merchant (in hop) he founded his own toy company: Georges Carette & Co. in Nuremberg, Germany, were he was among the first to make electric toy trams.
At the outbreak of World War I, Carette left Germany for Paris. His company was seized as alien property and ceased trading in 1917.
