Did you know it’s Matchbox’s 60th Anniversary?Â My boys love Matchbox cars and playsets.Â Matchbox has provided durable cars and playsets all these years from dinosaurs to fire trucks and rescue to police cars.Â They have definitely sparked imaginative play in my boys through play and have also been inspiring.Â They are inspired by firefighters and police officers and other real life heroes.Â As a mom, I have always found Matchbox to be very durable too.
Here’s my little firefighter!
