May Cheong Ltd was founded by the Ngan Family of Hong Kong in 1967. They used MC Toy as their brand name, before changing it to Maisto in 1986.

Prior to using the MC Toy name as the base designation for their castings, models were distributed as Rainbow Toys (UK) in Britain. The Collector's Club of Great Britain makes notes a reference by Mike Pigott to one known Rainbow Toys castings representing the vehicle used by "Dempsey and Makepeace" in their television cop show.
