CIJ (Compagnie Industrielle du Jouet) was founded in Paris in 1927. The company first manufactured tin toys, amongst others detailed racing cars and CitroŽn models in big scales from 1/8th to 1/15th. The CitroŽn models were also sold as promotional models by the car manufacturer itself. In the 1930s smaller tin cars and toys made of other materials were released, and in 1935, when the production of the CitroŽn promotional models stopped, CIJ began to cooperate with Renault. In 1949, after World War II, CIJ introduced a range of 1/43rd scale diecast models in the style of the contemporary Dinky Toys, which were partly also available with clockworks in the beginning. Many Renault models were released in this range, but also cars made by other car makes. Furthermore, CIJ also produced toy cars in 1/24th and 1/87th scale. The company closed down in 1965, but in 2007 Norev introduced Chinese-made re-editions of CIJ models from the 1950s and 1960s.
