Wanted: Vintage Toy TV Ads / Footage

Author
Time
 (Edited)

I am currently seeking video/TV clips of Vintage Toys. I have all of the Kenner commercials, but I am now looking for any other vintage toy related footage.

In particular, any of the Palitoy adverts aired in the 80s.

I am willing to buy/trade.

Thanks

I don't know about getting actual copies on VHS or whatnot. But I do think x-entertainment.com usually posts old 70s and 80s commercials on their website. Saw a couple old SW commercials on it as well as classics like the old Encyclopedia Britannica ad. You might want to check it out. I think that's the website.

Yeah, that's the website. The quality is pretty good, considering the source material is likely VHS.

And old VHS at that. If not maybe even old BETA tapes.

Thanks guys. I found that one already. There are a few other sites too. http://www.bubblegoose.com/ClassicCommercials/commercials.html has several of the old kenner ads.

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to find the commercials that you do have already on tape? That's pretty incredible.

I purchased a tape in 1992 with all of the Kenner ads on there.

Someone else did all the work!

Thanks for the offer, but I'll pass. It's cool, but not something that I would really watch all that often.

Thanks again.
