Noddy's Car was part of the Corgi Comics range released in 1969. Later models of the toy featured a teddy bear in the rumble seat as the racist implications of golliwogs fell from favour. The same toy was produced again in the 1970s with only Noddy at the wheel. This battered Noddy's Car car was played with by the Clow family of New Plymouth.
