The history of Tomy

For more than eighty years, Tomy has developed and made many exciting and educational toys, games and video games for toddlers, preschoolers and children. Known for its innovation, quality and safety, Tomy's mission is to produce toys and merchandise that entertain and inspire children and adults.

Tomy was founded in 1924 by Eichiro Tomiyama who made tin toys in Tokyo, Japan. In the 1920s Tomiyama realised that if all the small toy companies joined together to make good quality toys they would be successful and he was right. Tomy gained its first worldwide success in the 1950s when it created one of the world’s first battery operated toys, the Bubble Blowing Elephant. In 1970 they launched a new series of realistically proportioned model cars called Tomica. Over the next 40 years Tomy continued to develop its ranges of toys for all ages and in that time acquired many licenses for some of the most popular children’s characters, like Thomas and Friends and Pokemon. In 2006 Tomy (Japan's third largest toy company) and Takara (Japan's second largest toy company) merged creating a new global force in toys, children's merchandise and entertainment and became the fifth largest toy company in the world.
