Corgi Toys Summary

Corgi Toys by David Cooke

Corgi Toys proved an immediate success in the 1950s and over the next 30 years hundreds of miniatures would be modelled on contemporary vehicles. Life-long collector David Cooke explores the history of Corgi Toys, describing the various models and illustrating how these simple children's toys became valuable collectables. He also charts the recent financial problems faced by the company, and their resurgence based upon limited edition collectors models sold direct to an adult market.

About David Cooke

David Cooke's passion for Corgi Toys began when as a child he was given a model 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 organizations, writes articles for magazines and is the Corgi Toy Curator at Bressingham Steam Museum in Norfolk.
