MATCHBOX

matchbox-logo

The Matchbox die cast range was introduced to the UK by Lesney Products in 1953. The product took the name ‘Matchbox’ because their original models were packed in boxes similar in size and style to boxes of matches sold at the time. In addition to their die-cast vehicle lines Matchbox produced a wide range of toys and established itself as a hugely popular brand around the world.
