Matchbox 60th Anniversary Die Cast Collection *Fathers Day Gift Idea* – Review

Recently we received these new Matchbox cars from Mattel  to review, and they are real beauties. Ones’ for the collectors definitely.

Released to commemorate Matchbox’s 60th Anniversarythese 24 die-cast cars all come in their own retro Matchbox sized box just like in the old days.

With their gorgeous packaging, and classic vehicles, these Matchbox vehicles would make a perfect Fathers day gift.

Everyday will have played with cars during their youth, and whether a collector or not are bound to flushed with nostalgia by these beautiful cars.

As part of the birthday activities Matchbox have released a short film on Youtube and their own Matchbox Heroes website, celebrating the love of Matchbox cars between children and their parents.

There are 24 vehicles in the collection in total, ranging from classics such as the The Austin FX4 London Taxi and The Routemaster Bus to cool new models like the Mitsubishi Evo10 Police car.

The boys and I were sent the Evo10 police car, Volkswagen T2 bus and the Jeep Wrangler Superlift to take a look at.

I thought that the Evo10 being a Police car would be the runaway hit, but it turns out that Jacob prefers style to substance and fell in love with the cool stylings of the Volkswagen T2. He’s all about the gold bling underneath :)

Both of the boys loved the old style packaging, and were fascinated when I told them all about Matchbox cars coming in Matchboxes. They thought that was awesome, and both asked why the didn’t still come in the boxes.

Jacob is saving his favourite Volkswagen to give to his dad for father’s day, he’s been hiding it underneath his bed so daddy doesn’t find it. I think daddy is going to love it as he’s always been a Matchbox man, no Hot Wheels for him.

The Matchbox 60th Anniversary die-cast collection cars are available from Tesco for £3.49. Suitable for ages 3+.
