Description

Matchbox 1984 is a catalogue of toys where we can find models of miniature vehicles. The cover is illustrated with full colour representation of 2 cars, 1 helicopter, 1 fire engine, 1 old van and 1 wreck track. It has a blue and white background with the name of the brand Matchbox and the year 1984 written on it.

Matchbox is a brand of toys made at Lesney’s factory in Hackney Wick. Leslie Smith and Rodney Smith founded the factory in 1947. The idea behind the small vehicles was that they should be affordable and small enough to fit into a matchbox.
