The simple cars made of soft plastic (vinyl) by Tomte
from Stavanger in Norway became typical for a whole category of car models. After having released plastic and rubber models in various scales between 1/24th and 1/40th in the 1950s, the company introduced a range of 1/43rd scale vinyl models in 1963. This range remained in production until 1978 and included 32 car and three train models, which were available in various colours. Most models were copies of contemporary diecast models by Dinky Toys
and other manufacturers. A few 1/30th scale vinyl models were also made. All in all, Tomte produced more than 100 million toy cars and exported them all over the world. Many companies from other countries (e.g. Plasto
from Finland, Galanite
from Sweden, LKE and HP Plast from Denmark, Stelco, NP and Vinylline from Germany) soon offered similar products.
