Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It’s funny what that we use as touchstones to our past but the toys of the past were so inventive and iconic that it’s no surprise they conjure up almost instant warmth upon first sight.
Though I was not alive when most of these commercials aired, but I am very familiar with G.I. Joe, Captain Action and Stretch Armstrong by reputation. The Six Million Dollar Man ads bring back some fond memories… and don’t get me started on the Mego superhero/Star Trek toys.
Plus, dig those fly-away action Wonder Woman dolls!!
