Surprise Thursday: Diecast in Mladá Boleslav

Today I visited the Skoda museum (pretty cool, I learned a lot). I planned my train trip back a little late, and had some spare time. There doesn’t seem like a lot to do out in that town with a spare hour if you don’t have a car, so I visited a small mall across from the Skoda facility. In it were two toy stores. Let’s see what was in stock - store 1:

Pretty cool rotating Majorette display, gave me memories of the small sized rotating Majorette display at a gift shop when I was a kid. Singles and sets:

More souvenir type Skoda models, and more big Tatras etc, these seemed a little dear at ~$80:
