NEW collection Racecar Models >>

The 1930s saw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spin dizzies or tether cars. Miniature racecars built by hobbyists zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spin dizzies competed at once, tethered by cables to a central pole.

Powered by model airplane engines, spin dizzies raced against the clock. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed using original blueprints our Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. One look and you'll be ready to join the competition..

Collectable Racecar Models
NEW Victorian rocking horse with Western saddle >>

Our iconic rocking horse is a full-sized reproduction of originals dating back to the 19th C. Victorian rocking horse is hand carved in top quality mahogany. Hand made saddle and tack of real bridle leather. The expert skills of wood carvers, cabinetmakers, and saddlers are evident. Hand finished in a warm and glowing French-style varnish, slightly distressed to make it look somewhat aged. A timeless treasure and a dream-toy for both boys and girls. Imagine its value in 50 or 100 years!
