30 Years On…

Matchbox, a cornerstone of most boys and girls childhood used to be made by England based Lesney Product, instead of Mattel, as it is today. But unfortunately, the company, like much of its British toy manufacturing brethren, went out of business nearly 30 years ago. But, enthusiasts are trying to keep the memory of the British made diecast models alive with events like the The Wellington Toy and Diecast Fair in Wellington, New Zealand. With numerous Lesney models on display, other vintage British diecast cars from Dinky and Corgi will also be on show. Even though Matchbox is not the same as what it used to be 30 years ago, the memory and nostalgia of the original Lesney diecast is not going away any time soon.
