The Tomy Co. Ltd. )

Takara Tomy is a Japanese toy manufacturer, whose products are sometimes referred to as the ‘Matchbox Toys of Japan‘.  The company was formed on the 1st March 2006 by a merger between ‘Tomy‘ (founded in 1924) as ‘Tomiyama‘, changing their name to Tomy in 1963 and their long-time rival ‘Takara‘ (founded in 1955).  The company has its headquarters in Katsushita, Tōkyō.

In 1970, Tomy started to produce its Tomica line of diecast vehicles.  Although various scale sizes are made, the Tomica name is normally associated with the 1/55 (3″) sized models.
