1980's die-cast Sesame Street toys
Was just given a bag full of 1980's Sesame Street die cast vehicles. I've never seen these before, but they seem like something that would be fairly common considering the popularity of the brand and the fact that the diecast toys take forever to wear out.
Does anybody know what I'm talking about? And can anybody point me in the direction of a website that could provide more info on this toyline?
Thanks in advance.
I bought one of those for my kid a few years ago, it was awesome. I think I paid $5 for it carded.
I've had a few over the years, they are very cool. I know Grover in the Rocket is the HTF one.
There's a page on Muppets Wiki about them: Sesame Street die-cast cars (Hasbro/Playskool) - Muppet Wiki
very neat! never seen these guys before!
They are not that hard to find, especially in lots of Sesame stuff. I had a bunch on a card at one point but sold em.
There's a lot of them on eaby right now. I remember someone telling me this was crazy rare, but there's 2 packaged ones up right now. 1983 Sesame Street Grover's Speedster Die Cast - eBay (item 380271926083 end time Oct-22-10 1637 PDT)

Yeah, it's weird. Seems like these would be extremely common finds considering. They don't seem to be all that collectable, at least in terms of dollar value, but cool nonetheless.
