- DescriptionDinky Toys were introduced in 1931 and these diecast metal toys became bestsellers. More than 1000 different subjects were modelled, mostly transport related. They were created by Frank Hornby, a Liverpool entrepreneur, and Dinky Toys were part of the successful Hornby empire, which also manufactured Mecca and Hornby trains and establish factories in France, Germany, Canada and other parts of the world.
- Author BiographyDavid Cooke's passion for Dinky Toys began when as a child he was given four for Christmas by his grandfather, and his collection grew. In 1972 he founded the South West Model Club and in 1979 the East Anglian Model Club. David now appears regularly on radio and television describing toys, lectures to many organisations, writes articles for magazines and is the Dinky Toy Curator at Bressingham Steam Museum in Norfolk.
