1985 Tonka Toy Fair Catalog

1985 Tonka Toy Fair Catalog

The 1985 Tonka Toy Fair Catalog was a gateway for trade professionals, like dealers and retailers, to Tonka’s latest action figures. These publications sparked excitement and empowered dealers, retailers, and other vendors to stay updated with the newest slate of toys. With this knowledge, they could easily order assortments of action figures, vehicles, playsets, and more directly from Tonka, simplifying their procurement process.

This Tonka Toy Fair Catalog showcased the GoBots, a revolutionary line of robot action figures that offered the thrill of transforming fun. Introduced to the market in 1983 after Tonka licensed the robots from a Japanese company, Popy, the GoBots were a hit. Tonka released several GoBot classes of various sizes, including the Super GoBots. They also unveiled playsets, such as the epic war between the Friendly robots led by Leader-1 and the Enemy robots led by Cy-Kill.

Beyond the Gobots, this Tonka Toy Fair Catalog featured many more toys. Tonka created a selection of Mighty Cycles. This catalog also featured the company’s famous Trucks and Powered Action vehicles.

About Our Tonka Catalog Scans

Tonka handed out catalogs to attendees of toy fairs and other events, such as dealers and retailers, to promote their upcoming slate of products. Each catalog contained information about the company’s newest toys, even ones still in development. Thus, companies often included first looks at action figures, playsets, vehicles, etc. Therefore, they have become valuable and rare collector’s items.

These Tonka Toy Fair Catalogs featured toys from their beloved lines. For instance, Tonka made waves when they released a line of transforming robots, the GoBots. They also embraced the fantasy world of Willow. The company is also fondly remembered for the Spiral Zone action figures.

Tonka used in-production prototypes in their images as these catalogs were prepared before the lines were released. This meant that the featured toys often differed from the retail releases. Moreover, toys sometimes appeared only on these catalog pages, as they were canceled or never hit retail store shelves.

While Tonka only handed these booklets to trade professionals, we have now made them available to all. You can explore the toys featured in these catalogs with our Tonka Toy Fair Catalog Scans. This is a rare treat since catalogs like these have become increasingly difficult to locate with each passing year.
