DINKY TOYS


Dinky toys, produced from 1933 to 1980, have become popular collectibles today. This book, now in its sixth edition, offers concise history, detailed listing of major variations, chronological list, and newly updated price guide. It includes all the Dinky toys made in Britain, France, Spain, and other parts of world, from the earliest model railroad accessories to the first cars that bear the name Dinky Toys.

"This is a very handsome and useful book, in which all models made by Dinky Toys, even from Hong Kong ,are displayed in color.With exception of the airplanes and some of the extraordinary sets, the models are not photographed in detail. Much information about the models is not given (in my opinion not necessary). At the end, prices are given, but these will certainly vary depending on the state of the model and the availability of an original box. The format of the book is such, that it is very easy to take it with you in your pocket." (Reviewed by Customer) Buy Now.
