Welcome to The Vintage Toy Advertiser (TVTA) 🙂
TVTA’s mission is to digitally showcase as much vintage advertising as it can get its ink-stained fingers on: from toys, to film, to music, to comics, video games, fashion, food, drink, household goods, 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 adverts, catalogues and posters that went beyond toys. Today the site is an ad-free, non-revenue platform aiming to serve as an excellent digital archive and resource.
Why do we do this? Nostalgia makes us do it, plus a need to chronicle what has come before us and has helped shape us, coupled to an addiction to the sparkling lure of pop-culture and the desire to step foot as guiltlessly as possible into the great hall belonging to the non-stop monster of capitalism. We do it for the love of bright colours, fun and play, and because we are collectors and archivists and still kids at heart.
TVTA is: Ford (Editor). Wooof (Office Cat extraordinaire). Jaltesorensen (special agent in Denmark). Zerocal (special agent in Brazil).
