CORGI TOYS

Corgi Toys are famous for producing quality die-cast scaled vehicles. Introduced in the UK in July 1956, Corgi are perhaps best known for vehicles made famous in popular films and television series such as Batman, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Dakatri, The Saint, The Muppet Show, Starsky and Hutch and Charlie’s Angels – to name just a few! The James Bond 007 vehicles range are also a popular choice for Corgi – to date, the Aston Martin DB5 remains the biggest-selling toy car produced.

In addition to the TV series and film vehicles, Corgi produced standard road vehicles that included emergency, military, agricultural and public transport. Corgi continues to produce a broad range of quality and collectable die-cast vehicles today.
