Accessories & Garages

(NONE of these cars are for sale).

Garages & accessories are not my collecting focus, so I will not have complete images.

The accessory pack series was short lived after introduction in 1957. It consisted of one wheeled vehicle & the rest non-vehicles. Garages (& other play buildings) were introduced in 1959 & continued through 1981.
