BASA (Bakelita y Anexos S.A.) was founded in Lima, the capital of Peru, in 1949 and started making bakelite products. In 1954, production of plastic products began, mainly household articles, later also toys such as dolls, figurines and vehicles. The company had its golden age as a toy manufacturer in the 1970s and 1980s, when it made contracts with American groups such as Mattel, Hasbro and Kenner to manufacture some of their products under licence, namely dolls and action figures related to movies and TV series. Regarding Kenner products, BASA also produced the windup toy cars from the "T-zzzers" range in about 1/40th scale, with a single big drive wheel in the inside to rev up, in the 1980s. The Peruvian models got their own package with the BASA logo, but the bottom plates remained identical to the Hong-Kong-made standard models. The same toy cars were also manufactured under licence by Plastirama in Uruguay. BASA declared insolvency in 1998 and stopped production, but returned to the market as a manufacturer of household products some years later.
