Vintage Toy Store Photos Volume 16

In an effort to combat the end of summer blues, I've dig deep to the days of Pegboard and regional toy stores to bring the 16th edition of our vintage toy stores feature.

Installment 16 features old favorites such as the Bionic Woman and Six Million Dollar Man, Barbie, the Osmonds, Atari, Fisher Price, Mego Diana Ross and much more.

We explore such long forgotten chains such as Bambergers, Two Guys as well as local toy emporiums such as The Toy Shoppes and Youngtown.

Check out Vintage Toy Store Photos Volume 16 here.

Your Vintage Toy Store photos is my most favorite feature of this blog! I wish there was a real TARDIS so I could travel back in time to my '80s childhood and my favorite toy store, Child World! So many great memories of that place.

By the way, I had two vinyl Barbie carrying cases! They weren't like the ones in the photo, but I remember them. I wasn't much into Barbie, though, even though I had several dolls, I mostly played with Jem! :)

80's stores and no Strawberry Shortcake! You're killin' me! I lived near a ToysRUs and went there several times a week to just stare at the toys.

I absolutely love all the Vintage Toy Store photos. They bring back lots of memories of Lionel Playworld, which was my second home. You certainly are right about the creativity in store design back then. Thank you for the photos.
