Maybe someone with their Antonio Vitali retrospective catalogues handy can tell us for sure, but I think this sweet, signed toy car is from the US toy collection the Swiss designer launched after he did his work for Creative Playthings [and Childcraft? Am I remembering that right?]

Or maybe they'll keep their traps shut until they can scoop up this rather fine-looking example for their own selves. We'll know soon enough.
