Vintage toy commercials

Penneys TV spot - 1970s

Woolco & Woolworth X-mas TV spot - 1980s

Vintage store toy commerials! The Penneys video shows many great ones in their lineup, and the Woolco & Woolworth one is for a cool Tyco racetrack set! Had several of those babies over the years. An annual Christmas gift staple at my house growing up (needed a new one every year to replace the one we got last Christmas and promptly broke within a couple weeks).

No trip to our local malls was ever complete without a stop in Woolworth and Penneys!

Tyco, does that bring back memories? I had one of those race sets, too. In fact, I think I still have the adaptor and now know what it went to.

I never had one of those racetrack sets, but I played with my cousins' several times over the years.

The Betsy Wetsy doll (I think that's the US name, in Germany it was called "Kullertränchen") brought back memories, too. I remember purchasing one of those at the school flea market when I was ten and lovingly restoring it to its former glory. I must have given it away later, cause unlike many of my old toys it's not there anymore.
