I wish the toy aisles were still like this...


Recommended Posts

The pics look nice, but at the same time demonstrate why we probably don't see that sort of thing today and why many of those old toy stores are now out of business. You and I see lots of product we all loved, the store owners see lots of product that's not moving.



I don't think that's quite correct...


Back in those days, action figures WERE selling and were the big thing. Storers needed to keep that kind of stock on hand to satisfy demand. The same figures would sell all year long, rather than being considered "peg warmers" if they were more than a month old and still on the pegs. The problem is that they have been replaced by video games, mp3s, text messaging, and the internet. Technology has changed what kids keep themselves busy with in big ways. Once they stopped selling, that's when the stores started having trouble.


Unfortunately, this is also why we will never see things like the Flag or Terrordrome again...
