Our retro tin toy highway set was a marvel of ingenuity and design. Two included wind-up cars run on their guided highway, twisting and turning through the large colorful city, going over and under the bridge. Each trip around, the first car will stop at the top of the ramp to wait for the second car to go under the bridge. As the second car goes under the bridge, the car on top of the bridge is released and goes into action again.
The tin Highway Set was original produced in the 1950’s by Modern Toys Masudaya of Japan. This one was made by Welby Toys, originally from England and then produced in India, and has the same amazing Stop and Go action as the original.
Our Tin Toy Highway Set comes with 2 wind-up cars, beautifully detailed tin highway track including the original European Esso gas signs, and packaged in a colorful 1960’s vintage box. The set measures 16” Long x 8.5” Wide x 3.25” High with cars on the track.
For collectors, not for children.
