Description

Dinky Toys are a part of many people’s childhood. They were one of the many famous brands produced as part of the Meccano empire set up by Frank Hornby at his Binns Road factory in Liverpool. Although they began before the Second World War, it was the post-war ranges produced by Dinky that really caught the public’s imagination and helped to make the period into the company’s golden years. This colourfully illustrated book tells the story of Dinky Toys, including small Dinky Toys, the larger Dinky Supertoys, accessories and Dublo Dinky Toys. Author David Busfield also examines catalogues, marketing material and the unique Meccano Magazine as well as the collecting of Dinky Toys today. This book is part of the Britain’s Heritage series, which provides definitive introductions to the riches of Britain’s past, and is the perfect way to get acquainted with Dinky Toys in all their variety.
