Ideal 1987 Dealer Catalog

Ideal’s 1987 catalog hearkens back to a simpler time. Whistling Mr. Machine, Laser Erector, Magic 8 ball, and the Kerplunk photos are great! The Action Games, Dunk-It!, and Snap Bowling, keep you active. Learn chemistry at home with Chemcraft. Or spin some bowls with Pottery Craft.

There’s a cool Transformers version of Battlin Robots, where Optimus Prime and Megatron duke it out! Sesame Street and the Muppet Babies show up in many playsets. Your favorite over-sized canary reads to you in Big Bird Story Magic. Care Bears, Fraggle Rock, Mask Centurions, and Laser Command appear in puzzles, games and some walkie talkies. The Silver Hawks have their own race track. Last but not least the King of Pop’s friends are here with Michael’s Pets! If you had a sequin white glove and a pair of penny loafers you had to get your own plush version of Bubbles the Chimp. Look for another icon, in a photo, who isn’t included in any of the toy lines.
