Lone Star Tuf-Tots

About 1968 or 1969, Lone Star introduced a smaller, approximately two inch long vehicles of varied scales called "Tuf-Tots" that were simply cast vehicles without opening parts similar in concept to the small Tootsietoys. There were four cars, sixteen trucks, and a couple of other vehicles offered. Cars were a Citroen DS convertible, a '68 Dodge Dart, a Corvette Stingray, and a Mercedes-Benz 280 SL.

  1. The first series were all convertibles with plastic drivers in different colours.

  2. The second series had no driver, rather a plastic black roof.

  3. Some vehicles of the series were re-released in the mid-1980s as brightly coloured "Zippy Zoomers"

  4. Others, like the DS convertible were used by Microlink Industries of Wales in a series named "Mokes" which were tied to a comic book storyline.
