I did a post recently that showed some scans of a Corgi Catalogue – http://www.thoseweleftbehind.co.uk/2009/11/old-cataloguescorgi-toy-catalogue-page.html – and now here is another set of scans, from 1973. Some lovely stuff here – Basil Brush! Noddy! Daktari! Batman! And loads of cool beach buggies!

Christmas is coming! One of the best things about my pre Christmas build up as a kid was checking out the toy pages in the various catalogue (Kays, Littlewoods, Argos). Been doing a bit of googling and came across some scans that have given me a little nostalgic glow – maybe they will do the same for you. Click on the images to get a bigger, better view of all those lovely toys (sorry girls, not a lot for you here…).
First off, we have a sample of the Corgi toy catalogue for 1980/81;
The full catalogue scan can be found here;
Here are the Argos page scans from their 1977 catalogue;
Taken from prog 171 (2nd August 1980). A promotion for Corgi and Matchbox toy cars – spend more than £3.00 and you got the choice of some great vehicles…..check them out.
