1988 Coleco Spring Toy Fair Catalog

1988 Coleco Spring Toy Fair Catalog

As Coleco prepared for the Spring and Summer of 1988, they handed out this Toy Fair Catalog to dealers, retailers, and vendors. With the outdoor emphasis of the summertime, Coleco focused on products that emphasized the expected outdoor fun. So, children and families would have an exciting time with Coleco’s selection of pools, outdoor furniture, and ride-ons.

Throughout the years, Coleco produced many high-quality pools that children could play in for hours. In the past, these pools featured colorful characters like Mr. Turtle. However, the 1988 selection was mostly filled with poly pools, Fill ‘N Swim pools, and other accessories.

However, Coleco did not disappoint in their Ride-On selection. Coleco had been one of the key companies that produced big-wheel power cycles, pedal cars, and other ride-ons for children. These toys often featured licensed properties from TV, like Knight Rider, and other toy companies, like Hasbro’s G.I. Joe. They also created ride-ons with both boys and girls in mind. So, there was a vehicle for any given child within their selection.

Wheeljack’s Lab proudly presents high-definition scans of the 1988 Coleco Spring Toy Fair Catalog featuring licensed ride-on toys.

About Our Coleco Toy Fair Catalog Scans

To promote their upcoming slate of products, Coleco handed out catalogs to toy fair and other event attendees like dealers and retailers. Each catalog was filled with information about their newest toys, even ones still in development. Thus, they were often provided the first looks at action figures, playsets, vehicles, and more from their lines. Thus, they have become valuable and rare collector’s items.

These Coleco Toy Fair Catalogs featured toys from their beloved lines. For instance, the Sectaurs, who combined insects with superheroes, appeared in multiple catalogs. Likewise, Coleco produced and promoted the Rambo toy line, which focused on the cartoon series. There were also many vehicles and toys from the Starcom toy line.

Coleco 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 in these catalog pages, as they were canceled or never hit retail store shelves.

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