A Larger Find of Smaller Treasures

Yesterday's purchase was a greater than usual lot of exactly 100 toys from kid's meals, spanning a time period from about 1980 to 2000. This has proven to be a slight challenge to actually catalog all of these toys, as they span so many varied licensed properties. Some of the pieces that have come out golden with a quick run through the collection include a set of four toys from McDonald's in 1988, those being an experimental group of Garfield vehicles. They were only released in two select markets (Erie, PA and Charleston, SC) and apparently flopped. The chance to pick up an in package set of four was a treat. That being said, there is still much cataloging to do.
