Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

We all started somewhere, with one vehicle or perhaps a pack of them. My mom was over recently and when she saw this one out she recalled it was the first “real” toy vehicle I ever had, at around a year and a half old. My parents got it for me in the hospital gift shop when my first sister was born (Tomicas! In US Hospital shops!). It’s a Tomica “American Truck,” and looks like a Peterbilt of the era. As you can tell it’s been enjoyed over the decades. I had no idea it was my first, but I’m glad I still have it, given how little boys tend to treat such things. So what did you start with?
