Wouldn’t you though?

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Wouldnt you though features here.

submarine large


Batten down the hatches, it’s a vintage toy alert! I don’t want bang on about how they don’t make toys how they used to, but, um, they really don’t.

At £190 you’re unlikely to be buying this Schucco Tinplate Submarino for bathtime, but vintage toys make inventive and thoughtful christening or investment birthday presents for kids too young to demand a Playstation.

This submarine comes from the fabulous Dodo Antiques in Olney, Bucks which also stocks a remote control Gescha Auto Fox Porsche complete with barking dog (!) if you’re more of a landlubber.

Dodo Antiques, The Old Cock Inn, Silver End, Olney, Bucks. Mk46 4AL. Tel: 01234 240505
