Mattel Toy Book for 1969



Normally I don't delve much in 60s toys as I wasn't made yet but I couldn't resist this cool catalog put out for kids by Mattel pre Christmas 1969. The main reason for me is that it solves a big mystery for me. In Kindergarton I played with these blue plastic men, never knew what they were and I was elated to find out their name was TOG'L Men.

I'm sure the rest of this well made catalog will be a trip for many as it includes such Mattel staples as Barbie, Hot Wheels and Major Matt Mason.

I had one of those "Strange Change" toys back in the day. Coolest toy ever...although I can see why they took it off the market. That chamber would get hot as hell.

Those Matt Mason toys were pretty darn cool! But like Brian, I was still floating out in space in the 60's.
