  1. I can still remember having my first toy car as a boy, great memories. The Tomica 2016 Honda civic would make a great addition to ant toy car collection. I understand that they can keep a greater value if they are kept in their original boxes, from a collectors point .I would be interested to see more toy cars in your collection.

    • Hi, Andrew. Thank you for visiting. You are right about the value when it is in a box. We couldn’t help getting them out of the box and play with them. At the same time, we would love to share with everyone what is in the box. We still keep some unopened in the box. We look forward to add more toy car collections in this site. Please do come visit us again as we continuously add the collections. Hope you enjoy them 🙂
