Tootsietoy’s 1941 factory catalog includes a illustration of their “No. 125 LOCKHEED ELECTRA” and indicates that the plane was distributed in assorted colors in a pack of two dozen. Later in that catalog the same plane is shown as being included in five different boxed sets. The plane also appeared in the factory catalogs as early as 1937. A Tootsietoy Electra is not an uncommon toy.
