Hello and welcome!
Tortoys offers a safe and reliable online shop for collectors of old toys, with something to suit all pockets.
Launched in December 2004, Tortoys is a hobby that turned into a business. I had been accumulating various old toys for several years and, like most collectors, had some spares and duplicates for sale. I also worked for a retail systems company and wanted to learn how to set up a shop on the Web, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone - and Tortoys.co.uk was the result!
I started by offering a selection of the Matchbox 1-75 'regular wheel' models manufactured before 1970. Over time I added more categories including Dinky and Corgi diecasts as well as constructional toys. Tortoys quickly became known for excellent service, and now a large proportion of sales are to returning customers.
In September 2006 I started offering the Britains Floral Garden range, and this has proved enormously popular with collectors. Today Tortoys has one of the largest selections of Floral Garden for sale anywhere in the world.
I aim to give a prompt and friendly service and to respond to all orders and enquiries within 24 hours.
