About Matchbox Toys
Everything is better in miniature (well, almost everything) and Matchbox cars are no different. But despite their mini paint jobs and tiny rolling wheels, these mini vehicles are anything but diminutive. This big household name and even bigger brand collaborations make these dinky cars, trucks and vans a joy to collect and just as fun to drive and display as their life-size cousins.
What are Matchbox toys?
Founded and created in Britain in the 1950s, Matchbox cars were so-called because they were packaged inside cardboard boxes that were similar in size and shape to boxes of matches. Nowadays they are most commonly packaged in the more common and recognisable “blister packs” with the exception of some limited, collectible editions. They are well-loved across the world for their highly-detailed die-cast metal bodies and intricate paint jobs that look just like the real things. They can be raced and pushed along and because they are made from metal, they last for years and can stand up to the roughest playtime by young fans.
