One of the earliest spin-offs of the regular series was the cardboard play set known as the Roadway Series. The Roadway Series is quite varied and popular with
collectors. Lesney created many varied gift sets over the years with some mixing different lines in one set. When the Yesteryears were first produced in 1958, a new
line opened that offered gold or silver plated yesteryear cars bolted to a presentation set such as a pen set, cigarette case or ashtray. This line took on a life of its own
and there are untold number of variations. In the nineteen-sixties several new items were introduced, Such as The Picture Puzzles, Interlocking Home Display Case,
the Matchbox Traffic Game, and the Build-A-Road line of which only a few variations were ever produced.
One interesting addition to the 1968 line was the Matchbox Motorway. It combined the thrill of slot car racing with the standard Matchbox car. An expansion set was
added soon after. This information just covers a small amount of all the different products Lesney made. Another area that bears mentioning is the items created for
dealers, such as displays and dealer catalogs. Those items in superb condition are highly sought out by collectors
