Hunting for toy T or A .

Post by Roverdriver » Wed Oct 16, 2019 9:41 pm

I have a grand daughter, now nearly two years old, living in Las Vegas. Her Mum tells me that she loves cars. I would like to get her a T or A that is child safe. Would like something no bigger than 1/18th Scale but preferably smaller. The important thing is that it must be 'child friendly'
Any suggestions will be welcome, Many thanks, Dane.

Thanks for the suggestion, Bill, but as I live in Australia, firstly E-bay directs me to Aussie E-bay only, and apart from that I don't know what might have toxic paints. I am not hunting for an accurate scale model, just a reasonable representation that a very young child can play with and enjoy.

Thanks TRDxB2, That is a help. The link works, so I will trawl through what is there and try to work out what might be suitable.
Thanks again, Dane.

They made a run of cars for cars 2 and included a model t that is a little bigger than a hot wheels. If you black out the eyes its a pretty cool little toy and built to take kids abuse

That is great, babychadwick ! Just the sort of thing that I am looking for. Authentic true-scale models will be for her some time in the future, but for now that toy is ideal.
Many thanks, Dane.
