Tale of Tootsie Die Cast Toy Cars

It was a rainy afternoon yesterday when i decided to clean some of the boxes in our attic.

After unboxing some matchbox die cast toy cars, I was able to see again some tootsie die cast toys .

Fiat Red, Hot Road Roaster , Delivery Truck

The tootsie die car toys were made between late 1960’s to early 1970’s and was owned by my cousin before they were given to me in the late 1980’s. This used to be about  12 to 15 pieces which includes tank, trucks, military jeep and racing cars.

Some of the pieces got lost over the years, some were borrowed by playmates who never returned them.  Now, only 3 pieces of tootsie die car toys were left in our possession.

Toosie Toy had gradually evolve and now had changed ownership. The small die cast toys seems to be discontinued by the new owner. I think it would be more expensive to produce them now compared 40 or 50 years ago. Plus children wanted a more colorful die -cast toy cars.
