Mr Potato Head Store Display

Mr Potato Head Store Display

Check out this great Toltoys Mr Potato Head counter-top retail display! Full of minty boxed Toltoys branded Potato Head friends, these would have graced the counters of toy stores Australia wide in the late 60’s.

Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Playmobil Promotion

Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Playmobil Promotion

I found an interesting photo showing a 1977 box of Kellogg’s Australia Corn Flakes, with a Kenbrite Pocket People (Playmobil) mail-in offer. It appears that you could send in the coupon (and 50c) to receive a Playmobil figure.
Does anyone have an example of this box? I know there are some hardcore cereal collectors out there who must have seen it in their travels, I’d love to present a colour picture here on Toltoys.com!
You can get me on email will(at)toltoys(dot)com anytime…
Cheers!

Kenbrite Pocket People

Missed an important birthday…

Yes I didn’t notice that Toltoys.com turned 2 a couple of weeks ago. They grow up so fast *wipes tear*
But it’s not too late to celebrate, so I’ve called up the lads and they’ve rocked around with a a few cases of frosty Lowenbraus!

It’s not possible for me to hold my little Kenbrite Pocket People mates (Known to the rest of the world as Playmobil) in any higher esteem than I already do, I mean how many toys do you know that came accessorised with cases of beer? After a hard days firefighting a bloke needs a brew, and Playmobil knew it.
So here’s cheers to Playmobil and their visionary design crew, and to all the supporters and contributors of Toltoys.com over the last two years.
Thanks all!
Will
