Lesney Products have added a number of amusing little miniatures to their “Matchbox” range including Morris 12 pick-up truck, Ford Thames van in Singer sewing machine colours, Ford 3-ton 4 by 4 service ambulance, Ferriet scout car and an army general service six-wheeler lorry. They have introduced also a cut-out Lesney roadway to go with these little vehicles, which will amuse and instruct the children. In addition, another model in their splendid “Models of Yesteryear” series has been released, in the form of a two-horse L.G.O.C omnibus, while in the “Matchbox Major” series they have included a very realistic and detailed Thorneycroft “Antar” tank transporter with Sankey 50-ton trailer carrying a Centurion Mk. Ill tank with rubber tracks. Any good toyshop should stock these fascinating replicas.
Victory Industries of Guildford, have perfected their model roadways, featuring fast and reliable model M.G. and Triumph sport cars, which can be used either for continuous running or as a race game with skill needed to control the skidding cars. This game was used as a knock-out contest at the recent Sunbeam Register dinner in London. — W. B.
