Dinky Toys was the brand name for a range of die-cast Mazak zinc alloy miniature vehicles produced by Meccano Ltd. Dinky toys were made in England from 1934 to 1979, at a factory in Binns Road in Liverpool. Dinky Toys were among the most popular diecast vehicles ever made - predating other popular diecast marques, including Corgi and Matchbox. [Wikipedia]

Buying Rare Dinky

Buying rare toys can be a great investment as they tend to hold their values well, are much easier to sell at a later date and take far less space to store or display.

A single high value item is easier to sell than multiple cheaper items adding up to the same value. This is mainly due to the reduced labour costs.
However the most important considerations before buying rare Dinky toys are firstly originality and then the price.
Always buy from a seller you trust or at least make sure you have a full no quibble money back gaurantee so if for any reason you are not happy you can return the item.
It always pays to check the market thoroughly before commiting to a purchase as it is easy to get carried away and pay too much.
