The 1980s exploded with colour advertisments on television that tied food with merchandise like never before. 80s kids never knew a world without fast food toys and toys without breakfast cereal boxes touting their names and soft drinks duking it out with a little help from our favourite hollywood stars. And though previous decades certainly had their share of novel mail-in promotions, the 80s brought it together by tying food/tv/toys together- the stuff of kiddie dreams come true.
