Tomica is a line of small die-cast model vehicles that have been manufactured by Takara Tomy since 1970. The name is a shortened version of "Tomy's Car." Tomica has been one of Takara Tomy's most enduring toy lines, popular with children and collectors alike. What sets Tomica apart from other die-cast toy cars is the many functional details, such as doors that open and close and working suspension.

Tomica first began producing its die-cast toy cars in 1970, with this wave of products being known as the "Tomica Domestic Series". At the time Tomy was only producing Japanese branded cars and trucks and these types of Tomica cars were also known as "Red & White Box" due to their packaging designs. At first cars under this line were coupes and sedans, but later other types of vehicles were added such as taxis, buses, trucks, commercial and construction vehicles. Tomica first began producing Tomica of non-Japanese cars in 1976, to compete in the global toy market.
