European tin vehicle beauties
These tin vehicles traveled to Dilly Dally all the way from the Czech Republic, where they have been made since the 1950s. They are produced by one of the last die cast companies still manufacturing in Europe. These are high quality, beautifully produced tin cars with lovely attention to detail.
Some of the vehicles are wind-up, and come with an old-school metal key that slots into them. Wind them up, set them down, and watch them go! The ladybug has sensors in it’s antenna that keep it from walking off edges of tables. It’s always a hit around the store when it gets wound up.
This awesome little caravan can be attached to most of the cars, turning that groovy VW van into a full-on home away from home.
Some of the other VWs. These seem to be just as popular with the grown ups as they do with the kids.
We also have circus caravans, buses, trucks, and more! Break out your blocks, do some minimal construction work, and you’ll be ready to hit the open road with these beauties.
