Azrak Hamway International (AHI) Gallery

Azrak Hamway

The name AHI stands for "Azrak-Hamway Incorporated" the name stems from the partnership of one Marvin Azrak and Ezra Hamway. The company was formed in the mid 1960s, by 1974 they had purchased the name of the Remco Toy Corporation and utilized a two tier approach to marketing. Remco would produce the higher priced TV advertised items, while AHI would create lower cost rack toys. In the mid 1980s, it all folded under the Remco brand.

AHI is one of the most important toy companies to children of the 1970s as they produced a staggering amount of items during that period utilizing the hot licenses of the day. Everything from Lost in Space to M*A*S*H to KISS was in their rouster making their items highly collectible on the secondary market.

The product was sometimes crudely made but the appeal was in the concept and the eye catching packaging that the company was known for.

AHI MASH copter

It's not often you see M*A*S*H merchandise but the Helicopters make perfect sense, I don't really have a place for these yet so I'm just keeping them here until I create a "TV Gallery".
