AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF LITTLE THINGS THAT PLEASED BIG MINDS.
BOYS' TOYS provides a colourful, illustrated history of the most memorable toys from the sixties, seventies and eighties. Author Jed Novick spares no detail in presenting a nostalgic look at the toys that defined boyhood for today's men. Filled with fascinating background stories and specially commissioned photographs, BOYS' TOYS is a tribute to the cars, planes, trains and games that made life fun for millions of kids, including:
* Action heroes like GI Joe and Action Man
* Movie and television tie-ins from Star Wars, Starsky & Hutch and Dr. Who
* Vehicles from Matchbox, Hot Wheels, and Corgi
* Trains from Hornby, and plane kits from Airfix
* Design classics like Slinky, Silly Putty, LEGO and Spirograph
* Computer games from Atari, Apple and Commodore
* And many more!
Like flipping through catalogues of the past, BOYS' TOYS is full of the toys you had or always wanted. And this time you don't have to share!
