Some Trivia For You!
Lledo was founded in 1982 by the cofounder of Matchbox, Jack Odell and Burt Russell. Lledo is a reversal of Odell’s name, which he used as a mnemonic for his wireless call sign during WW2 in Africa.
The die cast toys were produced in Enfield, England from 1983 to 1999 using some of the Lesney tooling and machinery from the closed down Matchbox factory in Enfield, Essex.
Lledo produced the “Days Gone” brand of model toys. Some of the assets were sold to Corgi in 1999 and the Lledo name dropped in 2004 when the range became absorbed into Corgi Classics.
