Over a thousand Dinky Toys, the miniature cars that have delighted generations of children, have been put on display in Portugal.

The exhibit is taking place in Lisbon at the House Museum Medeiros e Almeida.

English Corgi toys, French Solido and Portuguese Metosul are among the brands, which are on display until the end of the year.

The miniatures are particularly rare because they stopped making them in 1974.

The more common toys can fetch €100, but the rarer models can reach the price of a real car.
