Hey Jon,

There's not much info on this camera, however here's what I know about it:

Produced by Toyohashi (Japan), which was formerly known as Tougodo Camera Company. They also made the Toyoca 35-S, which looks like this:

BTW, there was a sale of a Strato 35 pretty recently, about $22.00. Other than that, I can only speculate its value, about $35 to $45, depending of its condition.

:D Glad to be of help... Yeah, that's a great bargain, I haven't seen too many Toyocas or Strato 35 around, so they must be somewhat scarce.
