Tweet Toltoys Star Wars Painting Design Book This is the hard to find Toltoys Australia version of the Star Wars Painting Design Book, known as Kenner’s Dip Dots in the US. There is a New Zealand Toltoys logo box as well, but that one is nearly identical to the US Dip Dots version. Issued in […]
Tweet This is a great panel presented by three of the most knowledgeable and respected collectors of vintage Star Wars items from Australia, at Star Wars Celebration 2019, check it out:
Tweet Recently dug up this cool double sided Toltoys promotional flyer featuring three 1970’s MEGO Action Jackson accessories. All three items are scarce today, particularly when boxed. The Action Jackson Formula Racer had an Aussie cousin, a yet to be formally documented promotional release in BP livery, if you have one I’m buying! The Action […]
Tweet One of the most viewed posts here on Toltoys Kid is the entry featuring Willy Water Bug. I receive regular requests asking where they can be found today, unfortunatey I’m not much help, suggesting they start a ongoing search on ebay.

Tweet Continuing the theme of Toltoys stickered MEGO figures, here are three examples of Australian issued figures from the 1970’s Happy Days line, based on a the hugely successful US sitcom, we have Potsy, Richie and the Fonz.

Tweet And finally we have the Toltoys pages from the Toyworld 1975 Christmas Sale catalogue! The 6 Million Dollar Man heralded the arrival of Kenner as a licensing force in toys, cemented a couple of years later by their securing of the Star Wars license. Toltoys would come to profit greatly by this relationship, coming […]

They had the latest TV backed hits, along with the wonderful cheapie rack-toys for the after-school run. This great catalogue showcases the range available for Christmas […]
