A display of over one hundred period Dinky Toys model vehicles and accessories, in Arch Two.

Range

This collection charts the early evolution of Dinky Toys from its launch in 1934, to around 1958.

This covers the earliest period of Dinky Toys, from some of the first 1930s MAZAC-cast vehicles (replacing the small earlier range of lead-cast Hornby Modelled Miniatures) to the period when Dinky started having to add plastic windows and other plastic parts to compete with the new competing Corgi Toys and Spot-On ranges from Mettoy and Lines Brothers in the 1950s.

Provenance

The core collection is on loan from the collection of the late John Durrant.
