Corgi #226 Morris Mini in gloss finish.
Corgi Toys were first introduced as a sub-brand of Mettoy Playcraft, and was named after the eponymous dog breed that also hailed from the company’s headquarters in Swansea, South Wales. Mettoy Playcraft specialized in metal toy production, but had primarily focused on tin plate toys, not diecast toys. Their products were initially popular, but in 1956 they shook the industry by developing glazed plastic windows, an invention so essential it’s hard to imagine a time before they existed. Corgi Toys was so confident in this new innovation that they sold the new toys with the simple slogan “the ones with windows”. Their initial 1956 line comprised of eight classic vehicles of the period including the Ford Consul, the Morris Cowley, the Austin-Healey 100 and the Triumph TR2.
