    Tonka was quality.
    Toys need to able to be played with. Even now as a collector I hate fragile ornamental figures….they need to be able to be played with.

    I believe most of us must have played with Barbies at one time or another in our childhood 🙂

    I remember playing with Barbies at my neighbour .. she was cute and I was glad to be her Ken! Oh and I also remember playing Barbies with Tonka trucks at my grandma’s. Suffice to say they ended up as crash test dummies!

    That reminds me, at my Grandmother’s house, there was a little case with old barbie dolls. She didn’t have a lot of toys to play with there, so we had to make due. There was that, and this shuffle board kind of game that had ball bearings with red and blue “bumpers”, you had to shoot the balls up this track that was about three feet long and one foot wide, there was a partition in the middle making two lanes. I never knew the object of the game, but I think it was about getting closest without going over.

    I also remember losing a Trap Jaw arm accessory in her back yard. I swear its still there. If I’m ever a millionaire I’m going to hire a paleontologist to find it for me!

    Hey guys! I was checking where was all that traffic coming from on that She-Ra picture 😛

    lmao at “I somehow remember having to go to the girl’s toy section as a kid and it didn’t feel right!”

    I don’t remember buying any POP figures as a kid but I watched both MOTU and POP. I started collecting sealed MOTU last year and I couldn’t resist collecting POP too 🙂

    Cheers!

    Tonka Trucks were also a lot of fun. They don't make 'em like they used to, now they're all plastic. The old ones you could decapitate someone with them.

    @PrfktTear: I had one of the male dollls from Sindy or Barbie….he was wearing a suit I thought it was Superman and he would have the costume underneath LOL.

    I had several She-Ra figures. Including the Princess of Power herself, Queen Angella (she had big wings), Katra, Bow, and I think Glimmer. I somehow remember having to go to the girl’s toy section as a kid and it didn’t feel right! 😉

    I’ll say though I had a somewhat balanced childhood as far as gender specific toys. I didn’t play with Barbie or anything, but I had Rainbow Brite dolls, a kitchen set, etc. Not saying I played dress-up and had tea parties, but even with the domination of He-Man, Transformers, GI Joe, etc, there was other stuff in there too.

    I only remember one shop around here having them, cool as She-Ra and Bow was (LOL) I couldn't bring myself to ask my parents for them.

    And wow, that's feminine; I'm surprised, in retrospect, that I was able to open that package in order to add the figure to my collection when I was a macho nine-year-old.

    Had to have He-Man's sister, though.

    @PrfktTear: With you there man, I wish I had kept all my old Thundercats, MOTU, M.A.S.K. and Bravestarr etc boxes….man I loved the art work on the old toy boxes.

  11. I felt so ashamed when I saw these in store and liked them. There was something about them that appealed to me even despite the rooted hair and tons of nonsensically pink-colored elements. I still plan to buy a carded Double Trouble one day.

    The only line primarily aimed at girls that I secretly liked, but never owned when I was wee.

    Quite the high grade example, too. Very nice.

    I love seeing old toys on card. Sometimes I really wish I had kept some of these. I still have most all of my old TMNT cardbacks. What always gets me is seeing the price tags still on them, seeing old store names like Woolworths or Ames. Whats better is seeing the prices on them too… $2.48? Cheap!
