1972 TV Talk vintage toy magazine

Back before the Internet put everything at our fingertips instantly, the kid and toy world revolved around two things: television and toy magazines. Decades ago in Japan, TV Talk brought these worlds together with a monthly smorgasborg of comics, articles, posters, and toy ads. For toy collectors, the magazines are a treasure trove of vintage toy images and a window back in time.

I picked up the February, 1972 issue and snapped some shots. Click on each image to see the full size image.

Love these character cut out images:
