All kids love cars. This is a well-known fact; if it wasn’t true, then brands such as Matchbox, Dinky and Tonka wouldn’t have ever existed. They offered children hours of fun and helped to encourage imaginative play.
Some of the older toys that somehow got kept in their boxes are now selling for a lot of money. Most kids rarely own a toy and yet do not play with it, but some savvy collectors saw an opportunity to keep cars in boxes, so they remained in mint condition. Auction houses are popular places to sell collectables such as Matchbox cars.
Decorating a Child’s Bedroom
When decorating a car lover’s bedroom, it might be a good idea to start with wallpaper brands that offer car themes. Maybe try to find wallpaper brands that use the Disney ‘Cars’ images for younger children. This is a fast and effective way to set up a themed bedroom for a youngster.
Some wallpaper brands offer car-themed paper that is not in the style of a cartoon; they show real-life cars such as Porsche 911s and Ferrari F40s. High-end car manufacturers such as Maserati and Lamborghini have a range of merchandise that could further enhance the decoration of a child’s room, such as gym bags and jackets. These could be great gifts for a car fan!
Posters of cars might be an excellent way to go for teenagers or to even have a display of some of their own toys. Shelving units and display cases are great ways to show off a prized toy collection. If they are possessions that the child cares for, then keeping them safe in a display case will allow people to look at the items without damaging them. It might also be an idea if a particular toy is remarkable to actually buy two of them. One to keep in good condition and one the child can play with and enjoy.
Adult Car Collections
Of course, for older car enthusiasts, buying real cars will likely be more of a preference. Classic cars such as older MG’s are always a head-turner, but many like the original Ford Escorts or Austin Metros. Space to store the cars will be a must; it is essential to keep them somewhere like a garage where they are stored safely away from vandals, thieves and the weather. Keeping classic cars in pristine condition means they will not only hold their value but are likely to increase in worth over the years.
