Based in Westbury, New York this company was making Walt Disney licensed vehicles around the same time they merged with Mattel. The Walt Disney figures were called the "Collectible Die-Cast". Character figures of Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck were available with either a fire truck, ice cream truck or school bus. Each vehicle was ~2.5" long. In The Diecast Encyclopedia, the authors also describe and attribute a similiar set with the same 4 characters to Fisher Price.

The history at HobbyDB is currently (and mistakenly?) linked back to ARCO (the Oil Company). There are though, some individual items listed there that show the Mattel and Hot Wheels associations with the items shown for ARCO Toys.

One of them is a sealed playset that I have in my own collection and will add below. It is noted to be a play set from Arcotoys that was distributed by Dayton Hudson (Target) stores.
