#595 AVIVA - THREE SNOOPY VEHICLES (1982)


These are 3 die-cast vehicles (with some plastic parts) from a rather rare toyline of Snoopy, made in 1982 by the Californian toymaker Aviva. The collection had a lot of different vehicles, all of them with plastic figures of Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown or Lucy. It included many different types of vehicles: from a formula 1 to a train and from a biplane to a fire truck.


I have discovered this brand recently, because to my knowledge, Aviva has not made any "ordinary" scale cars except these. All cars include the copyright on the base, and some people think these toys were made in the 60s... but they were made in 1982 in Hong-Kong.

Toys are numbered with letter C plus a number.

I have been searching information about Aviva, but I have found nothing... If you have some information besides that their name was "Aviva Toy Co." and they were based in N. Hollywood, CA, please don´t hesitate to write a comment.

Another thing I know is that Aviva is a hebrew name, maybe the founder of the company?

    1. Hi, not very much. Depending on the condition something between 0 and 10 US$. Boxed probably goes up to 20-30 US$.
      Thanks for the comment!
