Company history
About Playing Mantis    
As a boy, Tom Lowe, founder of Playing Mantis, loved to catch and play with praying mantises. Liking the way the words sounded, and creating a whimsical mascot to embody the feel of the company, Playing Mantis was born in 1993.

Playing Mantis is a leader in the development and production of high-quality licensed and nostalgia-related toys. Best known for its Johnny Lightning® line of die-cast automobile replicas, Playing Mantis has a growing portfolio of exciting product lines that reflect an enduring commitment to quality, value and collectibility.

Playing Mantis makes Polar Lights model kits, Captain Action & Dr. EvilT action figures, Action Jackson action figures, and the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle.

Some Playing Mantis products are branded "Memory Lane".
