3D Universe

The TOYZ is a depicted as a hobbyist van that contains remote-controlled cars and explosives. The van is identical to the Pony, but has flat side panels with Toyz'n The Hood logos, similar to the Panlantic. The van is light blue in Grand Theft Auto III and white in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

3D Universe

The TOYZ van has mediocre acceleration and lousy steering just like its civilian counterpart the Pony, they seem to have no differences in handling probably due to the fact that it was merely used as a trigger point for the RC challanges rather than to be driven directly.

When found and entered, it starts a mission where the player uses remote-controlled cars in order to destroy people and property, rampage style, and sometimes an RC checkpoint race is activated instead. During these side-missions, the vehicle cannot be moved or exited, so care must be taken not to set it on fire by setting off explosions too close to it.

One can avoid starting the RC missions by pushing the van forward about two car lengths OR by taking it while on a mission. If done correctly, the player will not trigger the side missions and can drive the van as normal.

  • In GTA Advance, if the player looks closely while flipping over the Triad Fish Van, one can make out the words "TOYZ IN DA HOOD" on the van's side, which appeared on the TOYZ van.

  • The "Toyz'n The Hood" slogan that appears on the side of the van is a possible reference to the song "Boyz-N-The-Hood" by N.W.A. rapper Eazy-E.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the horn of the Toyz is shared with large trucks such as the Yankee and the Mule.
  • In both Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, if the player drives a TOYZ van by any means to another TOYZ spawning point, the RC side mission will sometimes instantly be activated in the being driven Toyz instead. (Confirmed on PC and mobile versions)
  • The TOYZ was originally going to be included in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, but was dropped during development and was replaced by the similar Top Fun van.
