Sinclair Oil Corporation is a US petroleum company founded in 1916. Their logo includes a dinosaur of the Brontosaurus - Apatosaurus type. During the 1964 Worlds Fair they made blow molded plastic dinosaurs for sale at the event. They also made another series of large solid soft plastic dinosaurs similar to Marx in style. The molds for that series have moved to different makers and dinosaurs were produced at least as late as the 1980s. Sinclair also gave Tim-Mee dinosaurs as premiums.

Blow Molded Dinosaurs

Introduced for the 1964 World's Fair, these were made of waxy plastic in the Mold-A-Rama machines for a quarter each. Original issue ones say World's Fair on them, later ones from the same molds say Sinclair Dinoland instead.
