Hello all,

fert.jpg

I hope this is cool here, I haven't posted in a little while.

Just wanted to introduce myself (Brian) and my newest project, Toy-Ventures magazine.

I missed stuff like Tomarts, Toyfare and Lee's, so I decided to bring it back in a new format.

The magazine will cover toys and action figures from the 1960s to the 1980s. It will cover toys from all over the world and specialize in stuff we hardly talk about from Mego, Kenner, Ideal, Matchbox, etc. We will span genres and already we've discussed everything from hand puppets to knock-offs to water pistols.

This is a labour of love project and I'm hoping it will grow, the 3rd issue will drop this March.

You can read more about the magazine here:
toyventuresmagazine.com

We also have a Facebook page:

Thanks for reading! Happy to answer any questions.

Cheers,
Brian

Ordered both - they are awesome. Highly recommend.

I also miss print magazines of toys. This is great to add to your Tomart, Lee, and Toyfare collections.
