Diecast Model Buses
The first diecast model buses date back more than sixty years, manufactured by well-known names like Lesney, Corgi and Dinky. Few buses and coaches were initially produced, and early models were treated primarily as simple toys for children. The idea of collecting and preserving these models became more popular in the 1980s as Exclusive First Editions began to enter the market, and early models are today highly sought-after. Today, many magazines, clubs and events exist as the hobby is thriving. Here, Simon Stanford takes a look at model bus collecting over the years and shows the wide variety of models on offer.

The Avengers and New Avengers Collectibles
What can be said about what is probably 'the' fantasy adventure series of the sixties? Beginning in 1961, the series ran until 1969. Most items of Avengers merchandise were issued in a two-year period, 1966-67, coinciding with the show's most popular pairing of John Steed and Emma Peel. This is a series that continues to influence even today. Cathy Gale and Emma Peel were the first in a long line of emancipated heroines with influences being seen in many modern series, including Marvel's Black Widow. Steed returned to our screens in 1976, a little older but still losing none of his debonair style, joined by two new, younger companions, Purdy and Gambit. Merchandising for this follow-up series was just as prolific as it had been for the original show. Both are covered within this volume.

Vintage Board Games: History and Entertainment from the Late 18th to the Beginning of the 20th Century
The printed board game reached new heights of beauty and ingenuity during the nineteenth century. The century began with a golden age for upmarket board games, finely engraved and often with glowing hand-colour. But these expensive games faced competition from the new process of lithography and by the end of the century mass produced games from the steam-press were flooding a European-wide market. There were games on almost every conceivable theme, whether on serious subjects like geography or history, or on the crazes of the moment. The games often relied on dice or a numbered spinning top called a teetotum, with no choice of move. Nowadays, the fascination of these games lies not in playing them but in seeing how they reflect the specific cultures of different times and places. Other games were designed for gambling, with a winner scooping the pool. Some, though, were `mind games', where serious thought was required. This book presents examples of all these genres. It is interesting to see how the focus of the games changed over the century - for example, how what had been largely a gambling game for adults became a children's game. However, games with a satirical focus, or a strong political message, were produced throughout the century and were definitely not for children. These games cleverly use pictures to convey their message, as do the many advertising games that began to appear towards the end of the century.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Collectibles
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was American television at its best. In the sixties, spy series just didn't come any cooler than this. Almost a direct result of the success of Bond in the cinemas, this series spawned a whole wave of copycat TV shows and its influence is still being felt today. The recent Kingsman films and comics owe more than a passing nod to the show for inspiration. A remarkable array of different products was issued in connection with this series - everything from bubblegum to wristwatches. Few other shows at this time came close to the range of products issued. There were quite possibly more U.N.C.L.E. products issued in the US alone, during the sixties, than for any other TV series being produced at that time. In this book the reader will find a vast array of those items.

Die-cast Commercial Vehicles
Commercial vehicles comprise delivery vans, trucks, articulated tractor-trailers, tankers and service vehicles. Most are emblazoned with the names and logos of their owners, or product advertising - from chocolate bars to soap powders, breakfast cereals to Oxo cubes, soft drinks to whisky, department stores to petrol companies, and morning and evening newspapers to exotic holiday destinations. The types used range from early horse-drawn carts and wagons to motor vehicles and steam-powered and electric vehicles. Model commercial vehicles are among the most colourful of all models - and die-cast companies have been producing them for close to a hundred years so there are plenty to collect. Many carry the liveries of real companies. Some still exist, others are long gone, with models helping to keep the memory of these vanished firms alive. Some models are commissioned by companies to promote their products or services. Here is your guide to this colourful world, from classic Dinky Toys to modern adult collectibles.

Toy Trains
The 00 gauge train set was the ultimate 'boy's toy' of the 1950s and '60s. Electric 00 gauge trains were introduced by Trix and Hornby Dublo in the mid-1930s, but the Second World War quickly halted production. However, they burst back onto the post-war scene with great success, and 00 quickly became the dominant scale in Britain, and was taken up by other large manufacturers including Tri-ang. Whilst the components of the sets themselves were often basic, they could be transformed into astonishing landscapes in the hands of imaginative builders. The sheer number of box sets, locomotives, rolling stock, buildings and accessories gave everyone the ability to form a bespoke layout. This beautifully illustrated introduction to the heyday of clockwork and electric 00 gauge trains tells their story up until 1975, when finer detailing and changing trends led to them becoming enthusiasts' models rather than children's toys.

The NES is one of the most iconic video game systems of all time, and is often credited with saving the American video games industry in the early 80s when it looked likely to collapse. The NES Encyclopedia is the first ever complete reference guide to every game released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo's first industry-defining video game system. As well as covering all 714 officially licensed NES games, the book also includes more than 160 unlicensed games released during its lifespan, giving for the first time a definitive history of this important console's full library. Written by a retro gaming expert with 30 years of gaming experience and a penchant for bad jokes, the NES Encyclopedia promises to be both informative and entertaining with masses of information, full-colour screenshots and little-known facts. The NES continues to enjoy a strong cult following among Nintendo fans and gamers in general with wide varieties of officially licensed merchandise proving ever popular: both for older fans who remember it the first time around, and younger gamers discovering the system for the first time through Nintendo's regular re-releases of its older games. Nintendo's most recent console, the Switch, is the fastest selling video game console of all time in the United States and Japan. Nintendo recently launched an ever-growing library of classic NES games for download on the Switch, meaning a new audience of gamers is discovering the NES for the first time.

Radio Flyer: 100 Years of America's Little Red Wagon
USA TODAY Bestseller A visual history of one of childhood's most beloved icons-the Little Red Wagon-told through a rich collection of photos and stories that highlight its unique place in American culture. For generations, the Radio Flyer-the fire engine red wagon with the distinctive white logo emblazoned on its side-has fueled the imaginative adventures of children, transforming them into astronauts on a rocket ship to the moon, racecar drivers in the Indy 500, and pioneers traveling into the badlands of the Wild West. The Radio Flyer is the story of childhood-a story of wondrous journeys often accompanied by someone important: a parent, a sibling, a friend, a pet. Since 1917, the family-owned business Radio Flyer Inc. has created this cherished wagon, building a legacy of high quality, timeless, and innovative toys that spark children's imaginations and inspire active play outdoors. With more than 100 million wagons sold-many of them passed down from generation to generation-Radio Flyers have carried, hauled, and fueled more hours of magical escapades than any other children's ride-on toy in America. This beautifully designed and illustrated keepsake book pays homage to this cultural touchstone as it celebrates its first centenary and embarks on its second. Packed with 250 exclusive full-color and black-and-white illustrations, stories, and original drawings from the Radio Flyer Inc. archives, Radio Flyer chronicles the history of this popular brand for the first time. Radio Flyer's story is America's story-a story of an enterprising Italian immigrant's dream realized, and a testament to the value and strength of family ties. Including a host of tender reminiscences from fans across the country, this touching tribute is a special piece of childhood, and the perfect gift for everyone who's ever loved a Little Red Wagon.

Diecast Toy Cars of the 1950s & 1960s
Collecting diecast toy cars has become an increasingly popular hobby over the last 25 years. Many of the classic diecast cars of the 1950s and 1960s are now valuable collectors' items, and surviving examples in mint and boxed condition regularly fetch significant sums at specialist auctions.This book provides a comprehensive survey of the companies that made these toys in the 1950s and 1960s, not only in Britain but in other European countries, the USA, Japan and beyond. Major names such as Dinky Toys, Corgi Toys, Spot-On and Matchbox (Great Britain), Solido (France), Marklin and Gama (Germany ), Tekno (Denmark) and Tootsietoy (USA) are examined, but a unique feature of the book is the wealth of information provided on many smaller and more obscure brands. These include Crescent, Budgie, Chad Valley and Lone Star (UK), CIJ and JRD (France), Dalia (Spain), Buby (Argentina), Gamda (Israel) and many others about which information is hard to come by. A special chapter is devoted to early Japanese diecast models by Cherryca Phenix, Model Pet and Diapet, which are among the rarest and most sought-after of all diecasts. Fascinating insights into company histories are provided, together with 300 photographs of rare examples of the toys themselves, in mint condition with their original boxes. A further unique feature is the inclusion of a large selection of colourful and evocative illustrations from catalogues and period trade advertisements. For the newcomer to the collecting hobby, this book will provide an ideal guide to the history of the manufacturers active in this field, while experienced collectors will make many new discoveries. At the end of the book, readers will find a handy glossary listing the names of many of the companies that manufactured diecast toy cars in the 1950s and 1960s.
