Post War Dinky - v - 2018 Mobile Phone

Sat on the train home tonight and saw this advertisement in the free magazine within the newspaper.

Nothing untoward as one of our local supermarkets is advertising a mobile tariff....but check out the picture closely!

What do you think?

Re : Post War Dinky - v - 2018 Mobile Phone

Simon, many thanks for posting this beautiful ad. The present youth is always busy with the telephone. They can no longer live without it and have become a necessary toy for them that can no longer be ignored in their lives. Fortunately they also have an eye for the toys of the past, namely a Dinky Toys 503 Foden Flat Truck with Tailboard. Apparently they find that it is valuable to have them or to collect them. That is hopeful for the future of the DTCA.

Re : Post War Dinky - v - 2018 Mobile Phone

He probably found one of his Grandad's old toys, and is even now using his smartphone, checking ebay to see how much he might be able to sell it for - or am I just being cynical?
