Fantastic Plastic (and Rubber)

Cereal premiums, toothpaste premiums, detergent premiums, erasers, and just plain premium toys. These were the colorful, portable bagatelles that brightened my childhood.

What a feast to see all of of these "candy colored" delights all together! It' hard to say which batch is most desirable to me; they all have such great and fun delights. These kinds of toys illustrate the best of my favorite species of toy: the figural character. They are all alive and brimming with character. Some have inherent character from the source inspiration, but all are imbued with just that extra touch of life that makes them little quantums of character potential, ready to leap into action in a playing!
