Patio Pleasures!

It's a bank holiday here but instead of enjoying my swell new patio set, I'm stuck with moving chores. Booo.

Super Heroes by Croner

I found this catalog from Croner, an Australian toy distributor that carried alot of US items by companies like MPC and Azrak-Hamway International.

Nothing that I haven't seen before but it's nice to end a week looking at stuff like this.

That Captain America kite is particularly dreamy.

Muppet Candle Making Kit

Candle making kits are both wonderful and strange, you are essentially setting fire to characters you find beloved.

Big Jim 1984 Catalog from Italy

He may have faded from our toy shelves in the 1970s but in Europe, Big Jim was still kind of a big deal.

How big a deal? In this 1984 Mattel Italy catalog, Big Jim has as many pages as Masters of the Universe.

By this time, the Big Jim line is firmly set in the future with flashy villains, sci-fi heroes, giant play sets and transforming vehicles. It is one of the most underrated and attractive action figure lines of our life times.

Check out the 1984 Big Jim Italy Catalog here.

More Big Jim than you can handle!
