As children, we had a much loved collection of Matchbox cars. The brilliantly detailed, scale models of assorted vehicles provided us with hours of fun as we wheeled them around in our own imaginative adventure games. This year, marks the 60th anniversary of this iconic brand. To celebrate, they have released a collectible line of twenty four of their best loved classic vehicles, each one coming with its own retro box.
We were sent a Routemaster Bus and a Blaze Blitzer Fire Engine to review. These truly are timeless toys that will appeal to children and grown-ups alike. The retro feel of these Matchbox cars will transport dads and grandads back to their own childhoods, giving them a nostalgic journey through time. Little ones, new to the brand, will love sharing moments with their dads as they whizz the vehicles along the floor. The Matchbox 60th anniversary celebratory video really made me smile.
Other vehicles in the collection include a VW Beetle, a vintage tractor, a London Taxi, a police car, jeep, Austin Mini Cooper, ambulance, Mustang and a Porsche. Six decades of iconic vehicles are making a welcome comeback to toyboxes and collections!
The Matchbox 60th Anniversary Collection vehicles have an RRP of £3.99. They would make a wonderful Father's Day gift for dads or grandads who are fans of the Matchbox brand. I know Ian is going to love these vehicles and will enjoy introducing Freddy to a much loved toy from his childhood.
