Auto World

Today’s first pick in The 2020 PopCult Gift Guide is a website recommendation if you really know the person on your holiday shopping list and  all they want  is some kind of toy car.

You can find just about every type of toy car at Auto World. They carry die-cast, slot cars, large-scale die-cast and model kits…and not just automotive model kits. You’ll find model kits of spacecraft, ships, aircraft, monsters and more, plus paints, glue and accessories. They offer full slot car sets, or customizing parts and individual cars and track pieces. You will find the Johnny Lightning brand of die-cast as well as Auto World’s own brand and lots of other cool automotive toys.

New items at Auto World include a new series of Johnny Lightning Muscle Cars, large-scale die-cast of NHRA racers and classic Muscle cars, pre-built models from Star Trek: Discovery, a snap-together model kit of the MACH 5 from Speed Racer and an HO Scale slot car set based on the 24 hours of LeMans Endurance Race.

If you’re shopping  on a budget, you can hit up their clearance section where, for under ten bucks, you can find snap-together Star Trek models, Johnny Lightning die-cast cars, classic Lindburgh Dinosaur model kits, plus a selection of nautical, anatomical and aviation models.

Auto World was the original must-have hobby catalog for child gearheads back in the 1960s, and it’s great to see the name revived for for this website that carries on the grand one-stop-shopping tradition for toy cars.

If anyone on your Christmas shopping list has an appreciation for cool toy cars, this is the place to go.
