ERTL, who were well known for making toys of TUGS' sister series, Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends and Theodore Tugboat, also released diecast toys of Ten Cents and Sunshine from TUGS, which are now discontinued. These two toys have become increasingly rare and are valued among collectors.
- Only Ten Cents and Sunshine were released commercially by ERTL. Claims have been made to prototypes of the other characters, they, however, have never been confirmed.
- The 1990 versions have no date on the hull.
