1977 Azrak Hamway (AHI) Catalog

Another look into the wonderful world of Rack toys and one of it's shining stars Azrak Hamway, who in the 1970s were the kings of fun, inexpensive licensed toys.

1977 was a pretty big year for Azrak Hamway Inc and they had all the hottest licenses including the superheroes from the house of both DC and Marvel, the animated antics and both Micky and Bugs. For the sci fi loving kids, they could choose between the adventures of the Starship Enterprise, Moonbase Alpha or the forever lost Jupiter 2..

Popular sitcoms like M*A*S*H and Welcome Back Kotter also received an usual amount of attention as AHI looked to broaden into school supplies.

Wow, I see so many pieces that I either had or remember seeing on the rack. I always wanted that Space 1999 water gun, but I only ever saw it once in a market.

Those cars were always fun and having Spiderman and Batman just made them better. I always found it strange that I was a Spiderman fan when I never read a spidey comic until I was in my teens, it turns out it was likely all the little toys I had with him.

Whenever I would go to the store with my mom I would ask for a "cheapo", what I called these kinds of toys.
