The classic Tootsietoy cars and trucks were once a staple of childhood, the simplest, but most colorful and indestructible of toy cars. But is that all there is to it? No, but that core concept, so crucial to our perception of the brand, is what makes Tootsietoy the Model Car Hall of Fame’s Historic Brand for 2023.

Novice Brand – Nylint
