Those readers who collect new Dinky miniatures as they come out are accustomed to keeping a close watch on the toyshops, but they should remember that the French branch of Meccano Ltd. makes a range of Dinky toys which are not available in England but which are just the thing on which to expend surplus French currency on the way home from holiday, for instance.

These French Dinky miniatures are sold in toyshops both in Paris and in quite small French towns. The latest additions comprise a very imposing Autocar Chausson, the typical high-speed single-decker inter-town French ‘bus, fully six inches long, and a big Berliet platform camion, complete with twin rear wheels, spare tyre, towing hook, and a load container, which although shorter than the Autobus towers above it, being 2 1/2 in. high and weighing 8 oz., so that it typifies those huge lorries that are part of the French scene. Private cars in this latest range are a handsome Simca Versailles saloon in light blue with white roof and “whitewall” tyres, a Peugeot 403 saloon, and taxi versions of Ford Vedette and Simca 9 Aronde complete with “taxi” signs and taximeters. Be sure to collar some of these as you return from Le Mans! – W.B.
