NEW INFORMATION - 15/04/2016
INCOMING - I've just obtained a big lot of original catalogues for various Japanese tin toy exporters and manufacturers. These will enable me to increase the amount of information available on this site enormously. Recent posts are based on this new material. They are just basic posts at the moment but they should fill up with information over the next few months. If you can't find what you want now, be sure to check back later.
NOTE - I'm always looking to increase my collection of original tin toy manufacturers catalogues/scans of catalogues. If you have something that I don't have and vice versa I'm always willing to swap. Just contact me via the comments section below. Your comment will not show until it's been vetted by myself. You can safely leave your email address as I won't publish it.
ADDITIONAL - I should be adding around 100 new tin toys to the photo galleries so be sure to have a look.
N.B. Googles change from Picassa to Google Photos has caused most of the links to pictures in this blog to be broken. I'm gradually correcting them as and when I get time. It's a long job which has delayed the addition of new information I'm afraid! (03/05/2017)
