99p Shop bargains

They're 1/43rd scale, and they're actually not bad at all. The door mirrors on the 12 are rather oversized, but other than that they're just as good as some of the models I've paid ten times as much for. These were the only three old cars they had - they had plenty of G-Wagens, Imprezas and Land Rover Defenders in the same scale, but they wre of less interest to me. For 99p a shot I think those Renners are pretty good.

LOLz. I bought my lad a rep of my BMW, from the BMW tat-mongers at Goodwood a coule of years back, cost me the best part of THIRTY QUID. Now has no wheels or trim left. ARGH.
Those look soup herb!What great value - I'll try and find the 12 for my boy - he was so upset when I gave away my (real) one that I had to get him a Â£14.99 jobby from Renault themselves. Lasted all of two weeks in his hands!

To them yes but I think you'll find certain manufacturers are aiming their products at certain markets. Price usually tells you this.
If the person who owns it is 13 or under, it's a toy. If they are 14 or older, then it's a collectible

It's just speaking as a big time collector of diecast models, some of them very costly I can't bear harm coming to mine & the thought of any of these models being wrecked makes me wince! I guess it depends how mature you think your child is. I always held mine with kid gloves....literally! If we were talking about super rare limited editions or models that had otherwise sold out, I would imagine some people that had missed out would feel a little aggrieved that someone else may have bought one for their child to....err.....dismantle!
Not only that & perhaps more to the point is that alot of these models are aimed at adults for a reason & not just because they're precision made. We're talking about small, sometimes very fine, delicate, or even possibly loose parts which a child could easily swallow or injure themselves on, & as the parent you'd be responsible for that. I don't think the manufacturers should be sued for their products getting into the wrong hands.
