Continuing with my posting of classic Toys featured in retail Christmas Catalogs of the past.
Today we look at a JC PENNY Christmas, 1979. 🎄
Sales within the Toy industry in this period must have just been on fire. This year’s catalog featured a whopping 172 pages dedicated to the category. There were 10 pages alone dedicated to slot car racing. The choices of action figures and baby dolls were endless for kids surfing these pages. 🎄
This is also a big transition year within the action category. 1979 would be the second Holiday season dominated by the Kenner Star Wars line with the ESB sequel just months away. There are pages of figure lines here that have by now been around for several years. After this Holiday it would be clear to all competitors that the Star Wars Toy powerhouse was here to stay and a great many previously successful toy lines would end. Ultimately this was a good thing for the industry because that problem forced vendors to go off and innovate in order to compete. This refocus eventually leads to the birth of so many iconic toy lines of the ‘80s. 🎄
Also of note is the continuing rise of electronic tech toys and games. Especially Atari as the system establishes full on fad dominance as a must have in-home system for every kid’s wish list and it’s massive sales of the ‘79 Holiday season. 🎄
