    Toys Trains Trucks & Barbies

    Matthew Bullock Auctioneers will present over 1,300 lots in the upcoming Toys, Trains, Trucks, & Barbies auction, held this August. A key item in the sale is a Hot Wheels Redlines Sir Rodney Roadster die-cast toy. In the 1960s, the co-founder of Mattel, Inc., Elliot Handler, envisioned a line of authentic toy cars that would dominate the market. To carry out this vision, Handler enlisted Harry Bradley, an esteemed auto designer for Chevrolet, to lead the toy design team. Today, Hot Wheels is one of the most recognized brands in the toy industry. Other highlighted pieces include a Vintage Midge in an original box and three Bubblecut Barbie dolls in black. The auction will also feature a rotating display tower full of Matchbox cars. A popular British toy brand, Matchbox was founded in 1953 by Lesney Products. Several Lionel toy trains such as the Santa Fe Lionel diesel locomotive and New York Central Lionel locomotive will be available as well.
