J-Lynn Toys International - 1983 Toy Fair Catalog

Featuring classic toy fair catalogs on the Preserve is core to the mission of this site, as it provides a condensed and rapid way to catalog and save a diverse range of products from years gone by which may otherwise be forgotten. The J-Lynn Toys International catalog from 1983 is then obviously a favorite of mine. They say it best themselves:

J-Lynn Toys International offers a full range of quality toys for the discriminating buyer. We have carefully selected them from manufacturers all over the world with especial regard for originality, quality of workmanship and safety for the child. Pictured here is a sampling of our entire line. As you browse through this catalog we are sure you will appreciate our constantly high standards.
May we be a part of your 1983 program?

What really caught my attention here was their 2-page spread of Power Lords, in both wind-up and PVC formats! This semi-obscure yet fan-favorite line is always a key area in which to expand the knowledge, and it's excellent to have this new reference! Click through for all 47 pages of this fantastic catalog.

Coleco 1988 Toy Fair Catalog

What was Coleco up to in 1988, you ask? Well, the Preserve is delighted to be able to provide an answer to that question! From their 60+ page Toy Fair booklet, we see that Cabbage Patch dolls reigned supreme, with an abundance of sub-collections, seen only in the most successful and overextended lines. The stories from my father of the mayhem in toy stores at that time, while he was there on a Transformers mission, were borne out again and again across our great land. What a joy to have such a successful product! But, for those among us hoping to find more than the multitude of varieties of that collectible doll in these pages, fear not! We also get a ton of Alf items, some AFX Aurora racetracks, and some more obscure lines like Couch Potatoes and Mash 'ems!

Most excitingly for the Preserve, the real gem here is a fantastic many-page feature on the second season of Starcom! While all of the pictured vehicles did in fact see release somewhere in the world, it's wonderful to have them all together in their glossy, colorful glory!

Be sure to click through to see all pages in this book, and keep an eye out for ongoing additions to the catalog archive at the Preserve!
