Our long history in ice cream vans hire dates back to the 1960s. In the 1970s, the fun word created by tonibell was “tonibellissima”, with the idea that ice cream should be fun and very tasty!
After our great pink makeover in 1969, tonibell continued to flying the colours all the way through the 1970s, the 1980s and to this very day which marks us down and recorded as a piece of British History.
Tonibell were famous for there own branded lollies and give away toys as seen below, a little piece of history from 1960s to the 1980s. Remembered by many, loved by all.
We regularly appeared in many of the Cult TV shows as The Sweeney, Minder, Grange Hill as well as films which can be seen today on UK Gold and our chimes were always heard in the back ground of many shows back then and today on BBC1 EastEnders, so remembered by many of our bright pink vans chiming on the streets when your favourite programmes were on morning, noon and night, those were the days when you could get an ice cream and pocket full of sweets for 10p!
