Remco was a toy company founded in the 1940s that was best known for toys marketed and sold in the late 1950s and 1960s, like the Johnny Reb Cannon and Mighty Matilda Atomic Aircraft Carrier. The slogan was "Every Boy Wants a Remco Toy...And So Do Girls!" Remco was founded by two cousins: Ike Heller and Saul Robbins. The name Remco comes from the two words "Remote Control". In the mid-1960s, Remco acquired several licenses for popular culture acts such as the Beatles, Monkees, Munsters, Lost in Space and Batman.

In 1964, Remco was acquired by Azrak-Hamway International, Inc. (AHI), a toy company, in New York, NY. In 1997, Jakks Pacific acquired Child Guidance and Remco from Azrak-Hamway International.

The company was known by toy collectors for their many Universal Monsters figures produced during the 1980s. These figures were a continuation of the license and figures first produced by AHI during the 1970s.
