The Cooper Maseratis above were manufactured by Hong Kong's famous Blue Box in the late 1960s. Established in 1952 Blue Box is still going strong and is now best known for its Elite Force and bbi brands. Action Man remains up there with the most valuable toys - the Astronaut and Mercury capsule reached Britain in 1969 (America's GI Joe had been piloting his since 1966). Airfix didn't just make kits. These ice cream tricycles date from the 1950s - the remote-control Saladin armoured car was designed by Peter Allen in 1969. Pedigree Toys released their short-lived Tommy Gunn (top row right) in 1966 - they did better with 1963's Sindy. There's Mattel's Matt Mason and Palitoy's Little Big Man but who remembers cap bombs?
