Kidco was formed in 1977 and was a marketing arrangement for Universal Toys (Products). Products with the Kidco name on the base plate appeared with a copyright date of 1979 and were available until the early 1980s. A majority of these miniatures were already produced by Universal for several years. Conversion was relatively a simple task. Production occurred in Hong Kong and Macau by the Universal Group, a major diecast force owned by David Yeh, who subsequently acquired Matchbox. Although The Kidco vehicles were thusly identified, some were mounted on Dinky base plates when sold in Europe.
