Mattel '75 Toy Fair Showroom
Thanks to some tremendously thoughtful efforts from a good friend, I have a bit of toy history to unveil today. It's one of those things I've always wanted to see but never thought possible
But these rare shots featuring both the massive Big Jim and Barbie displays for that year have finally been unearthed. While they look primitive compared to the paegentry thrown at current toy fairs, it's still a wonderful look at how some of our childhood friends are marketed.
Barbie: 1975, this wonderful shot shows just how much Barbie and Big Jim shared, the airplane, the camperand the dune buggy.
More of the Barbie-verse.
No rainbow on the Big Jim backdrop, it's an awesome red, white and ble stripe! This is obviously pre P.A.C.K as it's all about the out doors!
The Kung Fu studio gets it's own section
I love Big Josh alone in the woods chopping away while across from him somebody is capturing a rhino!
