Timpo Toys was an English toy company started in 1938 by Sally Gawrylowicz. The company was originally known as Toy Importers Company which became TIMPO. The company manufactured various toys out of wood, bakelite and composition until the end of World War II.

Following the war Timpo made hollowcast metal figures, switching to plastic in 1954. The company ceased operations in 1978 and the brand name was bought by Toyway. Toyway subsequently sold some Nayab animal models under the name Timpo.
