K Mart Toy Sale 1978

While the newspaper flyer has yet to be replaced in this digital age and I admit I still check the Christmas toys out, it’s just not as cool as when I was eight. That’s why I thought it would be fun to see the toys on sale at K Mart during this week thirty one years ago.Lots of familiar faces and forgotten sights in this one including Tonka Trucks, Play Doh, Fisher Price Little People and the World’s Greatest Superheroes!

    I thought $3.98 was a lot for those superhero figures. If only I knew.
