So technically, it is not a book about Exin, but about Scalextric, Cinexin, Exin Castillos, Tente, Ibertren… and how these lines/licenses were exploited by other companies like Tyco, Educa-Borrás, Giro Toys or Popular de Juguetes (PdJ). There are many curious stories about people and companies, and as it is usual in this author, the texts are very well written and in a way that anyone could follow what’s being told.
This book is a bit different from the previous books by this author, because it does tell stories that happened just a few years ago, mostly in a time in which I didn’t have any interest in toys, and for this reason, it was particularly interesting. As usual, the book is very well documented, and uses first hand information sources, including interviews with employees and managers of the involved toy companies, that Xavier Arumí exclusively arranged for this book.
And last, I’d like to thank the author for including TFTP in his acknowledgements, and also for signing my book for me.
The book has 150 pages and can be purchased directly from Rosaspage.com.
