The uninitiaed may not know that MatchBox cars predate HotWheels by more than a two decades. They were originally made by Lesney, a small English company that grew quite large with the success of this line. The first MatchBox cars were smaller than the current releases and actually fit inside a small matchbox. With the release of HotWheels and Johnny Lightning, Matchbox adopted the larger size car and high speed wheels that are used today.
