...and the best car is...

When I was a kid, one of the major questions in life whether Matchbox toy cars are better than Corgi, or perhaps Majorette (yeah, I had a happy childhood). So, after about 40 years of intensive testing, I think I've arrived to a conclusion.

Corgi - especially the Whizzwheels series - is the best.

Their cars have withstood the damage from two generations of kids with nothing but paint and occasional window damage. And their wheels still roll as well as the day they were new, whereas Matchbox wheels invariably are squashed or twisted or loose. Majorette scores second best, and unfortunately the infamous Matchbox comes last.

Well done, Corgi.

(I know I'm a bit late, since all three brands have been sold and resold a number of times. Corgi Toys, owned by Mattel, still seems to produce stuff tho'.)

Some nostalgic drooling pictures for you:
