Diecast Toys Uk

The term die-cast toy here refers to any toy or collectible model produced by using the die casting method. The toys are made of metal, with plastic, rubber or glass details. Wholly plastic toys are made by a similar process of injection moulding, but the two are rarely confused. The metal used is either a lead alloy (in the first toys), or more commonly Zamak (or Mazak in the UK), an alloy of zinc with small quantities of aluminium and copper. Lead, as previously so widely used for cast metal toys, or iron are impurities that must be carefully avoided in this alloy, as they give rise to zinc pest. These alloys are also referred to casually as white metal or pot metal, although these terms are also confused with the lead toy alloys. The most common die-cast toys are scale models of...

Vikings defensive backs' reward for a job well done? Hot Wheels - ESPN (blog)

MINNEAPOLIS -- The postgame awards the Minnesota Vikings ' defensive backs now covet, the mementos they proudly display in their lockers, came from an idea that struck Jerry Gray on a shopping trip to Target. "I always try to give guys a little extra incentive -- something that you can go to the store and buy, but if you earn it, it's a whole lot better," said Gray, the Vikings' defensive backs coach. The keepsakes Vikings defensive backs are trying to earn from Gray this year are the ones many of them played with as kids: Hot Wheels cars. But the timeless toys have maintained their popularity for decades, and when Gray explained the award to his players after training camp, it was with a motto: Hard work never goes out of style. "So many things have changed over time with toys, but Hot Wheels have stayed the same," safety Harrison Smith said.
