a toy aisle from 1986

This wonderful shot from 1986 is likely an 80s kids delight with a shelf bursting with Masters of the Universe, GI Joe, M.U.S.C.L.E, Galoob's Infaceables (which we covered here) and even some unsold Power of the Force Ewoks lingering at the bottom.

Let's get those pesky kids out of the way and get a deeper look at the Toy Love shall we?

Barbie in a toy store from 1976

A Barbie Display from Indianapolis, I'd never heard of Cara before but she has quite a presence here.

Mattel Sunshine Family

Mattel's creepy eyed Sunshine family (we have a sunshine family catalog here and here on the site) had a nice presence in 1976, store name is lost to the ages.

a big display of Mego Dinah Mite

An endcap of Mego Dinah Mite and Mego Action Jackson closeout sets in this Value City store. They also seem to have a pretty powerful Barbie aisle.

Hotweels Display

This one kind of makes me weak in the knees as it's totally in my wheelhouse, a very messy toy aisle from 1979 shows off Micronauts, Mattel Shogun Warriors and if you look hard enough, a Kenner Stretch X Ray. That's a Micronauts Karrio looming in the foreground.

Corgi Display in 1979

I can pretty much stare at this all day, love the stuff I keep finding poking out.

an endcap of Mattel Shogun Warriors from 1979

And my head just exploded! This beautiful display of Mattel Shogun Warriors paraphanalia will haunt my dreams! I have been resisting Shogun Warriors for years, this kind of thing makes it hard. We have several Mattel Shogun Warriors catalogs on the site: 1977 Shogun Warriors 1979 Shogun Warriors 1979 Shogun Warriors Italy 1980 Shogun Warriors
