Jada Toys, based near Los Angeles, in City of Industry, California introduced their first diecast vehicles as novelty items in the form of two key chain rings. A Chevrolet pick up truck key chain and flash light combination and a Motor Max (?) PT Curise casting as just a key chain. The pick up truck has the same casting details as the the current Tack Cheung model did.

In 2001, their first series of diecast vehicles were called "Street Low" series. These were (8) low rider Chevy vehicles with "Dubz" wheel sets.

In 2002, their 2nd series of vehicles featured (6) customized GM vehicles.

These were followed by the "Road Rats" car line up and the 1:87 scale sized "Hot Rigz" tractor trailer sets.

In 2004, they introduced their "Homie Rollerz" made up of urban style low rider cars and a figurine included with each casting. They also introduced their Jada Initial D Series based on the anime series in 1:18, 1:24, and 1:64 scaled die-cast cars, model kits, and collectible figures. The product line would include such vehicles as the Mazda RX-7 FD3S, Mazda RX-7 FC3S, Nissan Skyline GTR R32 and Toyota Trueno AE86.

Their Big Time Muscle series is now retired but was made up primarily of Amercian muscle cars done in 1:64, 1:32 and 1:24 scale models and a range of 1:10 Scale RC vehicles.

The Dub City Series is often refered to as the bling line of Jada Toys.

They also provide castings for the multi-brand MiJo Exclusives Series which is distibuted by M & J Toys.
