Old Toy Ads Part One !!!

If you have some old Marvel or Dc comics from the 1970s , 80s , and 90s, then you know they are full of toy advertisements . Unlike today's comics, a lot of these ads have drawn some of the toys as you'll see, instead of just taking pictures of them . Here are three ads for your reading and viewing pleasure , or for just taking a trip down memory lane for nostalgic reasons .
If you were a child of the 1980s, then I'm sure many of you remember Mask . The Boulder Hill playset still looks good even by today's standard of toys . Now for a look at the last two ads, in which the toys are drawn not  photographed .
I do not remember the Morph O Droids , however from reading the advertisement it seems that they have Transformer like features and that they require batteries .
The little green army men many of us are familiar with . I miss these kind of ads, where you can order the toys from a company rather then going to a store and purchasing in person. Well there you have it. I hope you enjoyed this short flashback. Be on the lookout for more of these flashback ads in future posts .
