Gama was a German toy and model manufacturer and distributor founded in 1882 by Georg Adam Mangold in F├╝rth, Bavaria. The company's name is an acronym for "Georg Adam Mangold". Gama initially produced metal construction sets, which were popular toys during that era then moved into production of tinplate mechanical toys, but in the early 1900s, they began to produce die-cast toys as well. They were known for their high-quality toys, and their products were exported all over the world.

During World War II, Gama's factory was destroyed, but they were able to rebuild and resume production after the war. In the 1950s, they began to produce 1/43 scale die-cast cars, and they also entered the slot racing market. Gama continued to produce toys until the early 2000s, when they went out of business. However, their toys are still highly sought-after by collectors more...
