Corgi Toys

Corgi Toys was launched in 1956 as a new range of die-cast toy models by Mettoy Playcraft Ltd, the toy car company founded in 1936. These new toys were soon a huge hit. In its first year of trading Corgi sold 2.75 million cars, making it a clear leader of the British toy car industry. Sales increased in the late 1960s and early '70s. After a rapid decline in sales in 1983, Corgi reformed as Corgi Toys Ltd in 1984. Three years later Corgi turned to the export market for profits, soon distributing in Australia, Continental Europe and the United States. In 1989 the company was taken over by Mattel, the worldwide toy manufacturing giant (manufacturer of Barbie Dolls and Hot Wheels cars), and production was moved to Leicester, the Mattel headquarters. Corgi then introduced a new range: Corgi Classics, selling nostalgia cars, vans and trucks from the 1930s, '40s, '50s and '60s. At around the same period in the US, Corgi released a new range of trucks, fire tenders and buses based on North American vehicles. In 1995, Corgi regained its independence as a new company, Corgi Classics Limited. In 1999 Corgi Classics Limited was taken over by Zindart, an American collectors specialists. By 2000, as in the 1960s, Corgi was once again the top British model maker. In May 2008, international models and collectables group Hornby announced the acquisition of Corgi Classics Limited for £8.3 million.
