What an impressive thread and picture show!
I only own a few items. The most expensive being that yellow bucket.

Unusual. It comes with a normal Cattle Truck and not the My First Matchbox version. As it is in the bag, I am guessing it may be original. However, it may not be.

:) :D :P

Yes David, Yes some of the early MY FIRST MATCHBOX sets came with "standard" models.
See cover of some of the boxes.
Not sure about this one but will find out.

Looking forward to some better photos of that model if you have some time, including the baseplate if possible.

I just bought 2 more sets I was missing.
