A celebration of the toys which have survived across the decades, presented by a man who still plays with them.
When James May was three, his father gave him a toy car for Christmas, and a life behind the wheel and under a bonnet became his destiny. Forty-two-year-old James takes us on a tour of his childhood mind as he rifles through his boy toy favourites which include Meccano, Lego, Scalectrix, Airfix and, his all time number one toy, the train set. His love of engineering and building things has shaped the ingredients of his entire toy cupboard. There's not a microchip in sight. He still plays with his toys - still loves building things with his various sets. Each toy prompts a story - a history told via archive, anecdote and obsessive collector.
That means early mornings and late nights, with little time to write about toy cars. Thankfully I don't need to. Before I left, I took photos of the latest version of the Dodge Charger Pursuit from Matchbox. I decided to snap some pics of all the previous versions as well. Looking at the photos, I don't need to do much writing. It isn't a cool classic car, or the upcoming Miata, VW Transporter, or Nissan Skyline. It is a model that has been out a few years, and is a replica of a vehicle you see on the roads all the time, at least here in the US. It isn't a car that makes you do a double take, well of course unless you are speeding. The Boone County Sheriff version, with its simple livery (one of the members of the Boone County Sheriff Department, Keith.

Dit blog is gewijd aan spoor nul modeltreinen die op drie rails rijden naar Amerikaans voorbeeld. Spoor nul is een schaal die goed in de hand ligt en met een rijke historie. Het was de eerste schaal en dus het aftelpunt (nul). In Europa werden na 1955 andere schalen populairder als half-nul, N, Z en G. In Noord-Amerika kwamen de andere schalen ook op, maar bleef nul dominant. Europees schaal nul materiaal is doorgaans onbetaalbaar en daarom interessanter voor handelaren dan voor verzamelaars. Amerikaans spoor nul materiaal wordt massaal geproduceerd en is door de gunstige Dollar-Euro wisselkoers, Ebay en Paypal eenvoudig verkrijgbaar.

Photo: Adam IsmailOne of the best things about being a car nerd that people rarely talk about is that we actually tend to be pretty damn easy to buy gifts for. Perhaps it’s just me, but even after 27 trips around the sun, few simple pleasures still delight as much as getting a miniature version of a car I really like.Well, the gift-giving holidays are now behind us, and while I didn’t receive — nor did I buy myself — any diecasts or model cars, the season has got me curious about what...
Children’s toy cars have come a long way. While those classic Matchbox cars and more modern remote-controlled wheels might still be popular, there’s a new, techie variety staking its claim on the shelves. It’s inventive, encourages creativity, and, best of all, provides a lesson in applied science. The DIY Autonomous Vehicle Kit is essentially a playful yet educational science lesson. Perfect for ages 8 to 13, this kit gives kids a chance to build something they’ll be proud of while...
