Bought the range of these Great British classic die cast vehicles as souvenirs so aren't played with- but they look fab. When my 2 year old is older he will look back at photo's of the olympic's and the flame running past our house and appreciate these vehicles drapped with the 2012 olympic logo's, as a memorable occassion. I also got a good deal on the set by shopping around so i paid the equivelent to £5.50 each. I had also bought the mini double decker die cast classic bus which my son loves playing with and is very durable!!
