A brief history of Daiya of Tokyo, Japan: 

Daiya was founded in the 1950s in Tokyo, Japan. Their trademark is the letters “DAIYA” within a diamond shape. Daiya appears to have been active from the mid to late 1950s through the early 1970s. After the 1970s, Daiya seems to have faded from the public view due to marketplace pressures. As such, their current disposition is unknown. 

Daiya specialized in a wide range of novelty tinplate mechanical (friction), clockwork, and battery-operated toys such as space-related toys (ray guns, robots, etc.), motorcycles, clown-like figures, civilian vehicles, military vehicles, helicopters, airplanes, and horses. Many of their toys were produced with impressive multi-functional features such as operating lights and sounds etc.
