Yes, we know it's a little bit of a contradiction in terms, but here's where you can talk about Norev, Minialuxe, Siku, Polistil, Tomte, Auburn, Sun Rubber or any other ready-made model car that's made of plastic or rubber. Hey, they're still cast in dies!

I got a couple of the Triang Mini Kit models, the Ford Escort estate and the Austin mini bus they are heavily painted and soaking in oven cleaner at the moment , they are colours I don't have, also the MacLean's toothpaste van although not a kit I have included it here.

I don't think I have ever seen a toothpaste car before. This is unusual to me. It looks in good condition. When would it have come on the market? I see ads for the toothpaste from the 1960's but not this car.

The Push and Go range first appear in the mid 1950's.
The MACLEANS was an actual real promotional vehicle based on a Morris 'J'.

Thanks Rollerman, I was going to see if there were any publicity shots , my dad always said about a Chiltern Cheese van which had a cottage on the back , I have googled this and not found anything .

That's a great advert, the Zephyr Minic Elecrtic 1/20 such a nice model, I would like to get the Mini Kit complete I saw it at a toy fair a few years back.
