Toy-Ventures is a new toy collector magazine coming to you from PlaidStallions press, who brought you MegoZine, Knock-Offs and Rack Toys: Cheap Crazed Playthings.

Did you miss print toy collector magazines? So did we and that’s why we created Toy-Ventures magazine in 2020.

Toy-Ventures magazine is an old skool full-colour print toy collector-focused publication featuring toys and action figures from the 1960s to the 1990s in a comprehensive manner.

Each issue of Toy-Ventures magazine will feature collector guides, rare photographs, interviews, and articles by some of the toy experts in the Collector Field. It’s a quarterly celebration of our childhood friends!
