It seemed everything in the 1980s existed for one purpose: to sell toys. Cartoons? Chock full of ads: Coming to a local Kmart near you just in time for the Christmas rush!  Fast food? Buy the meal and get a free toy!  Breakfast cereal? What’s breakfast cereal?!  Oh, that crunchy crap we dumped out on the table to get– the toy!  Marketers knew that the all-powerful toy marketing scheme had to start somewhere and they made good use of that other omnipresent selling machine to get their wares out to the masses: television. Here’s some of my favourite ads from the 80s and I bet some were your favourites too.
