As Toy-Ventures Issue 6 rolls out to people worldwide, it has come to our attention that there was a glitch on one page: our look at the Dimensions for Children Richie Rich toy line. Jonathan Sternfeld (from the excellent website the Harvey Mercheum that I recommend you all visit) wrote this terrific piece.
While the article itself is still a visual delight, some lines of text got cut, and we at Toy-Ventures feel that it’s important that you get to enjoy it as it was initially intended. So, we are offering it as a free digital download for everyone to enjoy.
So please follow this link to download the article we titled “S’up Riches” (it was bigger than us) and enjoy a well-written look at this delightful and sadly short-lived line of toys.
