Estrela was a toy maker located in Brazil. They were founded in São Paulo in 1937, making dolls and wooden toy cars.

In 1944, it became a publicly traded corporation and as of 2005, Carlos Tilkian was the CEO of the company.

Its logo symbol is a four-pointed star, referring to the company name of "Estrela" which means "star" in Portuguese.

Estrela has at times been the Brazilian distributor for various toy brands from abroad, including Corgi, Hot Wheels, and Husky. They are also associated with a copy of a Dinky racer made with pre-Dublo style black wheel sets.
