Notes

Spanning the era 1970-1982, these glossy colour catalogues provide a fascinating insight into many of the models, sets and point of sale display items that were available to Corgi stockists during this 12 year period. Of course, these brochures that were distributed to toys shops during this time, did not just contain Corgi models but there are many pages that do!
Here are just some that caught our attention:

Note that the Playcraft catalogue for each year between 1970-1982 is included except for 1972. Note that there are two with slightly different covers from 1970. Some light wear and grubbiness in places although there are no tears and no graffiti.
A rare find and Corgi Collectors including Corgi Junior collectors will find them particularly useful – we cannot recall such a wealth of visual material from this era.
