    Plaid Stallions 1983 JC Adventures in Toy Land Catalog

    Another fun trip down memory lane courtesy of the JC Penney toy flier. The Penney Flier always kind of went a step up from normal advertising and this 1983 brochure looks more like a cool comic book than an advertisement. 1983 is a great example to have thanks to the metric ton of iconic 80s […]
