hi in 1970 i got to ride in the original car ,at the time you never think how important it is tillyou older, i have watched the film with my kids to the point they new every scene ,song by heart,it great family film ,and inocent un like todays films full of guns etc , it shame that alot of childern will not see trhis film ,as parents seem to let them sit on computers play games not sutable for their age ,i wish we could turn back time for them when being a child was fun free and safe, and that is what chitty stood for,
There have been a few Chitty Chitty Bang Bang toys marketed over the years, among them the Corgi die-cast models, a Mattel model, and a few others; they were more or less faithful to the original design, some regrettably lacking in detail. All of these toys have achieved some considerable value in the collecting world.
However, there was ONE toy in particular that I have not seen resurface since the 1960s, and I would imagine that it's among the rarest and most valuable today.
