Sunnyside LTD was founded in Hong Kong by F L Suen. They first began manufacturing diecast in 1979.

During the mid 1990s, they produced a series of 3.5 inch long Ford and Chevy pick up trucks for Megatoys marketed as "Mega Movers".

These fit into the "Made in China" only base plate information designation - as a loose casting, but the production packaging carries the designation of having been made by Sunnyside Ltd.

In 2019, they are currently still in operation as Sunnyside Limited in Hong Kong as a manufacturer of die-cast model cars. They now offer a range of scale models for collectors and toy cars intended for children. Models come in both free rolling and friction pull back powered versions. The make models ranging from 1:16 to 1:46 scale size of 1:1 car manufacturers such as BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Mercedes Benz, Lamborghini, Mitsubishi, Volkswagen, and other brands. Their toy items range from 2.5" to 19.5" in length and includes recreational vehicles, construction equipment, transportation vehicles, and other items.

Their manufacturing plant is located in Panyu, China.
