Vintage Toy Commercials #GIJOE, #MEGO, #STARWARS, #MASK, #SMDM

These commercials gave us a start to adventures and missions that would last for weeks. Here are few commercials I found on You Tube.  Of course my favorites are the old Gi Joe Commercials.What toy lines or commercials did you love as a kid?

Just Joe-In Jellystone Park style, #justjoe-in, #GiJoe, #JellystonePark

My family and I took a short vacation over Memorial Day Weekend and spent two beautiful nights in Jellystone Park, in North Java, NY. My good friend Joe came along for the weekend but being as busy as I was, grilling and relaxing, I didn’t have time to go out with Joe anywhere; We were hoping to go exploring for awhile. Luckily my son and daughter stepped in and decided to take Joe out for some fun and show him around a little bit. I believe my 9yr old son…

Forgotten Friday! The awesome MEGO company. #mego, #Forgotten Friday #DC, #marvel

Man, do I remember how awesome the MEGO company was. That company had licenses to more characters than any other I think. They had Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Marvel, DC, Tarzan, Planet of the Apes, Dukes of Hazzard, Star Trek, the list could go and on. I grew up playing with the Pocket Size Super Heroes And the other DC and Marvel figures from their World’s Greatest Super Heroes line:  I loved my HULK figure!

Gi Joe Adventure Team- “Just Joe-In”, #gijoe, #adventureteam, #justjoe-in,

At least once a week I am going to create a post featuring Gi Joe. I am calling it “Just Joe-In” That kind of came about from my wife asking me one day what I was doing and as I was cleaning a vintage Joe, I said “Oh, I’m just Joe-in around.” I just wanted to upload a few pics of a new GiJoe Adventure Team figure I put [contentblock id=1 img=code.png]together. This figure is a Hasbro 40th Anniversary head (repro of original), a super poseable GiJoe modern body, and…
