Micro Machines were insanely popular and outsold all the other traditional die cast vehicle manufacturers for a while.
80’s kids went nuts for them and were a product of the time, it’s a huge shame they aren’t around anymore as we think a new generation of kids would probably go just as crazy for them as we did back in the day.
For now, they are a happy collection of memories for us and if you want to start collecting them again or buy the originals for your own kids to enjoy then places like eBay are a great place to start looking again and equally worth checking if you have any of the rare ones sitting in a loft somewhere as you might be sitting on a goldmine!
If you’re feeling really-nostalgic for them and want to remind yourself about these we totally recommend visiting the Micro Machines Museum, you might be there for a while!
