ETS De Neuter toy trade catalogue 1995

ETS DE NEUTER is a French toy distributor that has been in operation for more than 60 years. The following scans are from its 1995 Christmas trade catalogue and feature many of the big name toy and game brands. The front cover has a wintry, foresty, Christmas wonderland feel to it, while the back cover shows a range of cool merchandise for popular 90s film The Lion King. In between these covers are more than 80 pages of well-presented toy photos and dioramas, making this catalogue a joy to look through.

As well as toys and games, ETS De Neuter distributed household, sports, leisure and electrical goods, which the catalogue also features – but we’ll save those goodies for another time. For now, sit back and enjoy these cool 90s toys. Click if you need to go bigger. Thanks for looking.

Play-Doh began life in North America as a wallpaper cleaning product! Its pliable properties meant it was also ideal for moulding into shapes. In 1956 it was demonstrated as a potential “toy” at conventions. A year later Play-Doh was advertised on TV as an official product. Play-Doh became available to the European market in 1964 and remains a popular and enduring toy.
