GAMA was the name of a factory for tin toys, which was founded in 1881 in Fürth, Germany. The founder was Georg Adam Mangold.
The GAMA tanks from the 1930s were legendary and were made even after the war. After the war, GAMA was one of the first producers to obtain Allied production approval. In 1971, GAMA bought TRIX Vereinigte Spielwarenfabriken Ernst Voelk KG in Nuremberg. The brand was continued as TRIX-Mangold. In 1980 the rights to Schuco were acquired and the company headquarters relocated from Schuco to Fürth. The brands TRIX, GAMA and Schuco merged in 1993 before GAMA and TRIX were sold to Märklin in 1996.
