I wonder what a Matchbox Suburb playset would have looked like? Would it have been one large parking lot? Would the housing have been behind gates? Would they have offered variations such as Matchbox Suburb (Streetcar Edition) or Matchbox Suburb (Exurban Edition)? Â I think a Matchbox City (Urban Renewal Edition) would have been interesting. Kids could have bought various Matchbox trucks to demolish buildings and construct highways. Hmm, I guess I’m glad they didn’t have that.

man, I had both the matchbox city and county when I was a kid, circa 72 thru 75 or so….I had amazing fire and police fleets and had my own additional “buildings” that I used in conjunction with the sets….I’d sometimes play the tv show “Emergency” with my fire and police forces….lol….great childhood memories!

Yay! You're now following matchbox city in your .

    Matchbox City is an ambitious participatory art project using sculpture, animation and storytelling to explore ideas about the current housing crisis and notions of home. Engaging people from across the North West of England and collaborating with people affected by homelessness, a series of sculptural installations will spring up in Manchester, Liverpool and Rochdale during summer 2014.
