Manufacturer-Info

Majorette is a French toy manufacturer which mostly produces small die-cast cars, particularly in 1:64 scale. They were founded in 1961 by “Emile Véron” of the family that also created “Norev” (Véron spelled backwards). Majorette became the main French manufacturer of Matchbox size miniature vehicles (roughly 3 inches long but the scale varied). The company has generally focused on everyday French and European models, and the main toy competition was “Matchbox”, but also the German “Siku” and Japanese “Tomica”. At the end of 1980, Majorette purchased revered 1:43 scale car and truck producer “Solido”. In 1982, Majorette USA was established in Miami, Florida, though Majorette models have not been retailed there since the late 1990s. Majorette was purchased by “Smoby” in 2003. In 2009 Majorette found itself insolvent again, and through a tribunal at the commercial court of Paris, a sale was granted to “Simba-Dickie”. Majorette and “Solido” today remain a part of the “Simba-Dickie” group. Today their well-known 200 line, which is available since 1970, continues to be made in Thailand and newer models are made in China.
