Britains is a leading British manufacturer of die-cast models with a long history of toy making and the oldest existing specialist in the agricultural toys market.

The company was founded by William Britain who is renowned for inventing hollow casted toy soldiers in 1893, giving his company a major competitive advantage by providing new levels of consistency. We must also thank Britains for adopting the scale 1:32 as their standard size, a scale that was adopted by other manufacturers and is still one of the most popular sizes, although today Britains also make a number of 1:16 scale models.

Britains range of farming toys was launched in 1921 and continues today with a regularly updated range of high-quality models that appeal to children over 3 through to collectors of any age.
