I was reading some old Angel And The Ape issues (I just love those zany comics from the sixties), and my eye fell on these advertisements for toys and clothing. What struck me is that, even now I know that the toys they try to sell probably are crap, they still make me want them (especially the Action Highway). Current toy adverts don’t really do that for me. I guess kids just got too jaded these days.
