The Vintage Toy Advertiser

Check out my sister blog The Vintage Toy Advertiser – one of the most comprehensive archive sources of toys and pop culture on the net!



TVTA began life on WordPress in 2010 as a project to archive 20th century print advertising and catalogues. Images include toys, video games, TV and film, fashion, food and drink products, comic books, as well as photographs from the personal collection of TVTA showing actual toys and products. The earliest images are from the 1920s, with a major portion of the archive dedicated to the 1970s and 1980s. In additon there is a strong presence of 1990s material leading up to the early 2000s.

The site is currently on hiatus and is no longer being updated at the moment. But with more than 4,500 images available to view, it is still very much a thing of wonder and delight, and is certain to appeal to those looking for a slice of nostalgia.
