The Vintage Toy Advertiser began life in 2010 as an obscure blog showcasing French toy adverts. In 2011 we moved to our current WordPress home and began developing a more international style. Today, TVTA’s mission and passion is to digitally showcase as much vintage advertising as we can get our ink-stained fingers on… from toys, to film, to music, to comics, video games, fashion, food and drink promotions, and household goods.
We have a scanning room… We have archives… We have an office cat called Wooof! In no particular order we like time-travelling, the 1970s and 80s, coffee, chocolate, books, comics, writing, art and design, music and photography, peace, love, nature, the stars and space, nonsense, silliness, Christmas catalogues, pizza… and movies that go well with pizza! Oh, and of course vintage toys!
If you like even just one of the aforementioned things then please feel free to join TVTA’s community of 20th century retro lovers!
Thanks for stopping by.
