These days people, even children, just buy things as and when they want them. The young me only got enough pocket money each week for two or three comics, perhaps some bubblegum, maybe a Jubbly in the summer. Everything else had to wait for birthdays or Xmas. I guess it would have been Xmas 1966 when I received my Corgi Batmobile. The box would have been thrown away with the wrapping paper.

Obviously I currently have too much time on my hands. I had to mess about with the size of the image and it took a while to find some A4 card that wasn’t too thin but not too thick to go through the photocopier. My scratched and well used model now has a great looking box to sit inside.
