Welcome to The Vintage Toy Advertiser 🙂
TVTA’s mission is to digitally showcase 20th century advertising and other printed materials which have helped shape pop culture across the years – from toys, to books, to film, to music, to comics, video games, fashion, food, drink, and much more!
TVTA began life in 2010 as a French blog documenting French toy adverts. In 2011 the site moved to its current WordPress home and expanded to include international printed materials that went beyond toys. Today the site is an ad-free, non-revenue platform aiming to serve as an excellent digital archive and resource.
TVTA is: Ford (Editor) and Wooof (Office Cat extraordinaire).
Thanks to Jaltesorensen (our special agent in Denmark) and Zerocal (our special agent in Brazil).
Editor’s note, April 5, 2021: Retirement – TVTA will no longer be updating its pages or providing new content. The site will remain an archive and keep its domain name. Apologies for the appearance of WP and any third-party advertising now appearing across the site – this is due to the cancellation of my paid plan.
A big thank you to all who have been involved with TVTA these past ten years 😎
