Bolivia

There is at least one manufacturer of toy cars designed and built in Bolivia: Plastigama started production of plastic toys and household equipment in 1986. The first factory was located in Cochabamba, but since 2009, the Plastigama products have been manufactured by the Plastycom company based in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Besides other toys such as balls, dolls and party accessories, Plastigama offers a wide range of big scale vehicle models, mostly trucks, but also pick-ups, offroad vehicles and passenger cars. While many of these vehicles are generic, some of them are simple, but quite accurately shaped miniatures of actual cars and trucks: VW Beetle (called "Peta" in Bolivia), Mitsubishi Montero, Suzuki Carry and Vitara, Jeep, Volvo F12. All these models are about 1/18th to 1/25th scale and made of sturdy plastic in vivid colours.
