Cash in with Kenner ’81

Cash in with Kenner ’81

Here’s a fun toy industry promo from Kenner, who was riding high on toy lines such as Star Wars, Play Doh, Glamour Gals, Star Wars, Strawberry Shortcake and oh yeah, Star Wars.

More on this promotion after the jump!

Even as a kid, I loved to collect the Kenner rebate books but never cashed any in.

$2.00 off a Millenium Falcon, if I got mine at Zayre’s that’s an even bigger savings!

Oh that sweet boxed Slave 1 is calling to me……..

    This brigs back memories. Even though I didn't cash in the rebate offers either, just seeing these pictures made me think of my Strawberry Shortcake dolls and my younger cousins' Star Wars toys. I also had two of the Glamour Gals dolls.

    I feel pretty sure I got some kind of rebate on my Millennium Falcon. Seems like there was something enclosed in the box. I don't recognize/remember these ads, but, man, I still get a little thrill at seeing ads featuring Star Wars figures. And I can't tell you how happy I would be to see Darth Vader's picture on actual money.
