Greetings vintage mates. Check out fellow WP blogger Mike Pigott’s excellent die cast toys and models site. The following reblog ticks three boxes of some of my favourite toys: the View-Master, die cast cars, and board games 🙂
Mike Pigott looks at a rare game that combines a board, a View-Master viewer and reels and four Matchbox Superfast cars.
During the 1970s GAF, the manufacturer of View-Master, entered the toy market with a range of games incorporating 3D viewers and reels. One of these was a race game that had the novel idea of using Matchbox cars as playing pieces. What makes this product of interest is the fact that some of the cars included were exclusive to the set and were not available separately, resulting in them being among the rarest Matchbox models of all time.
