Brinquedos REI is a division of Alfema Norte. They had a factory in Manaus and produced a wide range of toys in Brazil.

One series was called "Miniaturas REI" which were a licensed range of 1:43 and 1:66 scale Schuco models they made in Brazil. A few of the 1:43 scale models where kits. Most of the models where from the Shuco "Modell" line up. They also made castings frm the Siku model line under license in Brazil. More than 40 different castings were available and came in the same clear plastic boxes with foam wheel protection that Shuco used.

Others include models in 1:43 and 1:75 scales made of dyed plastic with molds from Schuco (Germany) after they went bankrupt.

Another known series of vehicles from around the mid 1980s were the "Serie Hot Cars". These were pullback friction vehicles. These cars and buses also had the "Masuda Toys Press Tokyo" mark and "Dapper" on their bases.

See Bandai, Masuda Toys, PZF, Shuco and Siku.
