Corgi Toys was launched in 1956 as the die-cast toy car wing of the Mettoy company.
A hugely successful brand and a genuine cultural touchstone the company produced some of the most iconic playthings ever manufactured.
Initially the company produced scale models of production vehicles of the day but some of the most fondly remembered and commercially successful Corgi toys were cars from films and from TV series. The James Bond Aston Martin DB5 holds the record for being the best selling toy car of all time.
Many of the features that are common on toy cars today: clear windows, opening doors, detailed interiors and removable wheels were all pioneered by Corgi. This commitment to innovation, providing their young customers with a previously unimagined level of detail, explains why the brand is not only highly prized by collectors but also enjoys unparalleled goodwill with the population at large.
