Diapet is the name of a series of mostly 1:40 scale die-cast toys produced by Yonezawa Toys of Japan after that company took over the Cherryca Phenix brand.
While Yonezawa is best known for producing tinplate toys of particular accuracy and in the scale of 1:24-1:18, Diapet toys are smaller die-cast replicas.
Their quality and realism made them popular for Asian children and collectors alike, although they have never made much of an impact in America. The word "pet" is the Japanese equivalent of "small" or "cute." Diapet toys continued being produced through the 1990s.
Yonezawa's toy division was transferred to Segatoys in May 1994 - the name Diapet is still being used by Segatoys for a line of model trucks and buses. Additionally, the "Diarobo" range of cars transforming into robots was launched in 2015.
