It was through a child-like obsession for Scalextric that Jadlam Racing Models was born. You might call us overgrown kids, but we've lost countless evenings racing on our huge Scalextric Tracks, desperately trying to shave off that extra tenth of a second. It was our favourite hobby, and we thought it should be yours, which is why we wanted to give you the opportunity to build your own collection without breaking the bank.
We opened our Jadlam Racing Models shop in 2005 in a small space above a Bicycle shop in Glastonbury, Somerset. We kept our prices low by splitting large Scalextric sets into our custom made kits.
During our second year of trading we won eBay's coveted ''Fastest Growing UK Business'' award. Delighted with our achievements, we expanded our premises and also expanded our product base, by offering the latest from Hornby, Brio and Britain's Die Cast Models.
In April 2008, with the help of our loyal and ever-increasing customer base, we moved our whole operation a few miles down the road to its current home in the idyllic city of Wells. The extra space in our new headquarters allowed us to stock Airfix, Corgi, Sylvanian Families, Meccano and Playmobil toys.
Later in 2008, we launched this website and started selling through Amazon, but our eBay Store continued from strength to strength: by 2009, we were the largest Toys and Games Seller on eBay....not bad ey!
We currently trade through this website, eBay, Amazon, TESCO Direct, Rakuten, Game.co.uk, Flubit and more! Since our humble beginnings in 2005, we have supplied toys all over the world, we have kept our customers happy - over 600,000 positive feedbacks on eBay are a testament to this. We've been welcoming some customers back again and again since the day we opened, so we must be doing something right.
Of course, we appreciate that we are nothing without you and nothing is more important to us than your satisfaction. You can buy from us with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you will receive a square deal from an internationally renowned retailer. And remember - if you have any queries at all, we are always just an email or a phone call away.
