If you can remember fiddling with Fuzzy Felt, peering through the Six Million Dollar Man's eye and squeezing polystyrene cement all over your Airfix Fokker, you need TV Cream Toys. Subtitled 'Presents You Pestered Your Parents For' this brilliant book is an indispensable memory-jogger for anyone who spent the 60s, 70s or 80s playing with toys - ie: all of us! (Sorry grandad).
eBayability is an important factor!
From Action Man to Crossfire, Shaker Maker to Stretch Armstrong, this irreverent but affectionate tome serves as a definitive A-to-Z of the playthings of yesteryear. Featuring over 200 colour photographs and a whole gallery's worth of specially commissioned illustrations, TV Cream Toys is guaranteed to bring the memories flooding back.
Remember Mousetrap? No? Here's a reminder...
Young or old, there's a toy from your childhood in there
You can almost hear the theme music to Morecambe and Wise as you flip through the pages and reminisce about Christmasses past; you know, the one when Evel Knievel got caught in the cat's tail; when Mousetrap actually worked; or when dad hogged Scalextric all day. You won't know whether to laugh, cry or race down the car boot sale in search of forgotten favourites.
Big Yellow Teapot / My Little Pony
Thanks to TV Cream Toys' brilliantly hilarious descriptions and fascinating nuggets of trivia you'll soon become a leading authority/bore on retro toys - who knew David Bowie owned part of the copyright to Connect Four? Not us and we're really sad!
Six Million Dollar Man - excellent eBayability!
We reckon this spectacularly entertaining book is going to fly off the shelves faster than you can say Petite Super International Typewriter, so hurry up and get ordering. Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to read about Raving Bonkers Fighting Robots.
