 How about adding a 70s toy section?

I was thinking of that too because I inherited some 70's toys/dolls from my aunt. But I don't know...disco aside, toys and dolls didn't seem to get rainbow and sparkly enough till the 80's.  :P I also really like the concentration on just the 80's/90's because they were such a great time for toys.

That being said, Dawn dolls RULE.  8)

I've not got any particular desire to add in 70's toys. I think 80's, 90's and relevant 2000's is enough to keep me going forever!  ;D

I think we should focus on two decades.  Most children get their toys from one to two and a half decades.  Personally I think doing any more than that on one website is biting off more than we can chew.

If we focus on our speciality, we will become (as we already have) very very good at it.  If we attempt more than we can handle, we may not be able to provide as much information as we want.  We ARE talking twenty something years, here.

I say let us stick to toy from the 1980's and 1990's to keep things simple.

70's is a cool idea. But definetly in the far off future. Once the well runs dry on the 80's and 90's toy. :)

The 80's and 90's were really fluid as far as toys go, in spirit and aesthetic. I was born in 1990 so half of my toys were 80's toys that came from yard sales and things, and half were bought new in the 90's--maybe this is why the two decades run together for me, toy-wise. Then everything changed really quickly once 2000 rolled around--more Brattitude and whatnot  ::).

The point of all this is that I like just having 80's and 90's toys. :)
