McDonald's UK Flintstones Wilma and Dino in Flivver

Our Flintstones Friday offering today is another in the McDonald's UK series, Wilma and Dino in Flivver. I don't know who first gave the Flintstones car the name of Flivver. Marx made a terrific tin-litho Flintstones car in the '60s and called it a Flivver but I'm not sure if that name was ever actually used in the original cartoon. Today's toy measures 3" (7.6cm) L x 2" (5.1cm) W x 2 3/8" (6cm) H.
This series of toys was a licensed tie-in to the live action Flintstones movie and consisted of only four toys:

-Fred  on Dino Crane
-Wilma and Dino in Flivver
-Roc Donald's

The figures are designed to look like the live action movie actors and not the original cartoon characters and even though there were only four toys, they make a great addition to any miniature Town of Bedrock. Enjoy!
