The FW Woolwoth Company of New York marketed diecast vehicles from many different sources.

In the early 1980s, they distributed "Diecast Metal Car" labeled packages with Summer made castings. At the same time, they marketed Playart's "Peelers" as individual blister carded items and as (6) packs.

In the late 1980s, Yat Ming made castings were offered as "Speeding Wheels" in single blister cards and gift packs. The relationship with Yat Ming ended in the early 1990s. The maker of the castings (?) that would become the Realtoy offerings next filled their "Speeding Wheels" line up of castings.

Woolco; as their Canadian based offices were known, marketed Yat Ming's "Road Tuff Rally Car" and "Road Tuff Street Machines". And also Summer's "Mega Racers" (5) packs.
