Kintoy Diecasting Manufactory Ltd is the maker of "Kinsmart" and "Kinsfun" diecasts. They were established in 199(2)3, with their manufacturering factory located in the Shenzhen provence of China. Their castings had either name on the base or only 'Made in China". Each casting is fitted with a friction pull back mechanism. Various scales were made and they are displayed in bulk display cases (usually side end caps) at retail sales points. When the VW Beetle and Mini Cooper were made for Edcor offerings they were only free wheeling models.

In the early 2000s, Kinstoy made Kinsmart castings for Boley to distribute in their "Dept-87" series.


Kintoy should not be confused with Kentoys which was not established until 1998.
