Welcome to our world of Moko Lesney's Matchbox toys which is dedicated to British made small scale diecast toy vehicles made before 1970, With our Models of Yesteryear section now completed we are pleased to announce the start of our new Superfast pages which can be found under the 1-75 index, This new Superfast section is being written with the kind assistance of Mick Bruce and hopefully it should be completed fairly soon. Our main interests are the pre Superfast era 1-75 series miniatures or 'regular wheels' models for which we have an updated Stannard guide listing and a 1-75 model and gift set price guide. We also have sections on other ranges by Matchbox including the early Lesney toys, the Accessory and Major pack series, the MG1 Service Stations and the King-Size section (regular wheeled models). There is also a little bit of Lesney history on our Lesney factories page and our Matchbox advertising pages.
We have photo guides for other small scale toys made in the north London area before 1970 and price guides for CORGI toys and DINKY toys, We have also updated our DCMT Lone Star Locos, Charbens Old Crocks, Morestone Esso series and Benbros TV series / Mighty Midgets pages which have new photographs, descriptions and values, There is much more planned for the future so check back regularly to see what is new. We currently have about 2600 pages and over 20,000 photographs on this site, We aim to make this the number one place for all vintage British diecast toy information so come back visit us again.
If you have any unusual 1-75's or interesting 'error' pieces that you think should be listed here please contact us
