It’s the end of spring and the start of summer.  It’s time to spiff up the car collection or in our case: the toy car collection.  These are cars, old and new, slowly dusted and brought back to life.  While not all these cars are Matchbox, that company still ranks number one in sales.  Matchbox brand was introduced by Lensey Productsin 1953 and later continued by Mattel, Inc. The brand was named ‘matchbox’ because its original toy packaging resembled match boxes because the original producer’s daughter could only bring toys that would fit in a matchbox to school. Mattel bought out the matchbox brand in 1997. Traditionally there are only 75 models in production at any one time. If they want to add a 76th model then one of the previous ones is discontinued and the number reallocated.
