It is not quite clear where the AHI name comes from. It could originate from “AHI Brand Toys” from Japan, but the AHI brand was also used by Japanese tin-toys manufacturer “Naito Shoten”. ”Naito Shoten” toys are usually marked with the brands AHI or AN and it is believed that they worked closely with “Nomura“ in the 1960s. They mainly produced tin toy robots. It is presumed that the “Naito Shoten” company was Tokyo-based and produced only a small selection of toys in the mid-1950s. But there is also a theory that “Naito Shoten” was a reseller of “Nomura” toy variations. AHI stands also for “Azrak-Hamway International, Inc.”, an US toy distributor and manufacturer. AHI models were also sold in the US as “Cragstan Models”, (Cragstan Industries Inc. from New York, was an US distributor that specialized in toys, mainly from Japan which was founded in 1930 and seized to exist around 1970). There are two different kinds of AHI toy-cars existing: Tinplate (1:40) and die-cast (1:87). Does anybody know more about?Model-Info
