Christie’s World of Automotive Toys by Mike and Sue Richardson
This text tells the story of the automotive toy, from its initial inspiration by Henry Ford’s mass production of the Model T to the present day. It is a story of the rise and fall of household names and the value added to tiny toys as they become collector’s items. From Strauss’s pre-war inventions in the US and Penny Toys in Europe, which flooded the world’s markets, the story of the automotive toy is propelled chronologically though the turbulent world stage of the 20th century.
