Plastic Cars

Plastic cars were great as they never chipped the skirting board and that kept the parents happy. I could have any car as along as it was Tomte Laerdal from Norway. That limited my car collection, but the plastic cars lasted forever!

The Tomte-Laerdal company from Stavanger, Norway produced soft plastic (vinyl and PVC), furniture-friendly toy vehicles from 1963 to 1978 in 1:43 scale. I remember playing with these as a child in the 1970s. They didn’t go as fast as my Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars but they had an appeal of their own.

Today the company, as Laerdal Medical, is best known for their CPR training dummy “CPR Annie” ( or “Resusci Anne” outside North America ).
