Johnny Lightning

Topper toys made the Johnny Lightning brand only for a few years in the late 60's early 70's.  More recently a collector has started back with reproductions and has reclaimed the trademark under the name of Playing Mantis. Read the story here on the "Great Toy Auto Race" by Robert H. Boyle printed Fall 1970, Sports Illustrated. It tells the story of the race between Hot Wheels (Mattel) and Johnny Lightning (Topper Toys).
