Tin toys and model trains are my great love.
Rob Boot’s love for tin toys and model cars goes back a long way. As a child he loved his miniature trains and Dinky Toys. It was Rob’s life-long hobby, until he took over the family wholesale toy business. There the focus was on importing and exporting miniature cars and tin toys from Japan. He loved being able to work with his passion in this way. He got to know the market, developed a respectable international network and even started his own model car line.
As an auctioneer, Rob uses his experience to bring in a good selection and to assess the lots. He mainly looks out for the original details and the condition of model cars and their packaging. Personally, Rob especially likes old tin trains and Dinky and Corgi Toys, but the newer model cars, correct down to the most minute detail, are also included. So both enthusiasts and (new) collectors are amply catered for.
