This is by far the best plastic toddler car I have seen so far, the blue Calsonic Skyline R34:
I wish I could have given one of these Calsonic Skyline R34s to my son instead of that horrid Smoby toddler car he got from one of my aunts. What is cooler than having your son imitate the Japanese Grand Touring Championship (JGTC) in your living room? By far one of the greatest treasures to keep in your family album!
This photo was shot by the guy who runs the Restive Horse blog on Minkara and this a gift for his son’s first birthday. You can really see he receives the R34 with great pleasure!

(BTW: anyone familiar what an Honolulu BBQ is?)
How often can you spot a Nissan Skyline R34, Toyota Celica ZZT230 and a Toyota Bb parked next to each other?
If you look closely you can also spot another Celica ZZT230 further down in the parkinglot!

And how about spotting another red Toyota Bb parked in the center of some Dutch town the same day? And spot two other R34s the same day as well?

And if you turn your head 45 degrees see another Nissan Fairlady 350Z parked next to a big giant?

It is possible: if you visit the funpark Madurodam in the Hague! The funpark is a scaled down version of the landmarks in the Netherlands, so a heaven for all scale model enthusiasts! 😛
I’ve paid the park a visit with my son and my wife and saw various cars parked or driving on the roads of Madurodam. Most of them were just VW/Audi/Mercedes/etc. and actually some were interesting cars like Porsches and Masseratis but I did not expect some JDM car nut to throw around Skylines, Fairladies and Celicas as if they were common cars in the Netherlands! Take for instance this blue R34 next to the main railway station of Utrecht:

Just blends in the scenery nicely!
And I also didn’t know people at the ING Bank headquarters owned a black R34:

Yep, apparently even people at the ING bank have taste! 😛
There are probably a lot more Celicas, Fairladies and R34s to spot in Madurodam but I wouldn’t have had the time to take a picture of them anyway…
