Thank you for your review.
I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed with the musical feature of the Corgi Ice Cream Van. I can confirm that this is correct and there is no fault here, it only plays a few notes just like the original 474 model.
We do hear what you’re saying about the desire to have Corgi Toys manufactured in the UK as they were ‘back in the day. Unfortunately, the stark fact is that the cost to the consumer would likely be four or five times higher, making the entire Corgi Model Club project unviable. We make no secret of where Corgi Model Club models are made – by Corgi, using their far east manufacturing facilities, and it clearly says ‘made in China’ on the base of the models. However, they are of extremely high quality, arguably better that the originals, if only because manufacturing techniques have developed somewhat in the last 50+ years. The country of origin has zero to do with quality, more to do with economics.

With kind regards
