Fleetwood Toys Gallery
Fleetwood Toys rose to prominence in the 1970s and became an established player in the licensed Rack Toy market place competing against industry heavy weights such as AHI and Larami. The company would have their strongest period during the 1980s, when they became known for the hottest licenses from TV and Film. Fleetwood Toys also had a tidy amount of product, while other company catalogs were rather vast; the Fleetwood line was always slightly more compact and efficient from year to year.
