    Matchbox pre-dates Hot Wheels by nearly two decades, 1953 for Lesney Products. Matchbox’s co-owner was Jack Odell, who when Matchbox was first bought out in the late 1970’s formed his firm Lledo (Odell spelled backwards). Lledo later failed in the late 1980’s, and Corgi bought them out, though eventually Mattel ended up owning all the brands of Matchbox, Corgi, Lledo, et. al.

    I noticed Hot Wheels were inducted but didn’t Matchbox make it to market a year before hotwheels? Im not certain, don’t feel like looking it up but nonetheless, Matchbox belongs if Hotwheels does. maybe even Hot Wheels/Matchbox since they are essentially the same toy but deserve their own recognition. I see Shogun Warrior and Godzilla or the model be it snap together or glue on the horizon.

    (MET: I think Matchbox was in the running this year but didn’t make it – I’m sure Mattel was more interested in pushing HW in – less so with Matchbox … I’m sure it’ll eventually get in).

    We would go to the Museum of Play about once a month when we were stationed at Fort Drum, NY. Always a good time. And there was a Lego store and LL Bean nearby, fun for the whole family!
