Although there are examples of historic dolls and doll's houses, Bryan Apps's nostalgic exploration of vintage toys focuses on the train sets and model cars beloved of boys throughout the 20th century. As well as brief histories of leading manufacturers and brands such as Marklin, Hornby, Corgi, Tri-Ang and Matchbox, there are profiles of the famous London toy stores Hamleys, Harrods and Gamages, colour photographs of classic toys and many evocative reproductions of period catalogues and advertisements.
