Dinky Toys were introduced in 1931 as 'Modelled Miniatures' and these delightful diecast metal toys, which instantly became bestsellers, still give pleasure to both children and adults. More than 1,000 different subjects were modelled, mostly transport related; they included cars, vans, lorries, buses, trains, military and farm vehicles, aircraft, ships and figures, Using colourful illustrations, David Cooke explains the history of Dinky Toys, which were created by Frank Hornby, the Liverpool entrepreneur who also masterminded Meccano and Hornby Trains. This introduction to one of the best-known and -loved ranges of toys is ideal both for toy collectors and for those with a nostalgic interest in the toys of yesteryear.
