The 1975 Mattel Toys Show Room

Thanks to some tremendously thoughtful efforts from a good friend, I have a bit of toy history to unveil today. It's one of those things I've always wanted to see but never thought possible.

But these rare shots featuring both the massive Big Jim and Barbie displays for that year have finally been unearthed. While they look primitive compared to the paegentry thrown at current toy fairs, it's still a wonderful look at how some of our childhood friends are marketed.
