Just when you thought we were done with those madcap kids and their crazy GTO, I go and stumble across another one. Sorry about that.
This one is a version that I haven't covered yet, the Corgi Juniors Whizzwheels Monkeemobile! (feel free to clap). Here she is...
By the way, it's the exact same scale as the Johnny Lightning version.
This version was made in Great Britain by Corgi Toys in 1970. It was a smaller version of their number 277 Monkeemobile, which is pretty much the exact car, only larger.
I happened upon mine in a pile of cars (mainly Matchbox) that I picked up at a yard sale a while back. I then put them away and kind of forgot about them until I stumbled across them a couple of days ago. So, in the spirit of completeness, I bring it to you!
Speaking of completing, as a kid, I had the Corgi 277 (which I pulled the guys out of...go figure) and I might need to complete the Monkeemobile collection with one of those... hmmm...
So until next time, I'm searching for Monkee-treasure!
