A big thanks to He-Man.Org for sharing these 1983 Masters of the Universe ButtonOns from Igorr’s collection. I have a very vague recollection of seeing these in the store but I suppose I was too old for the ButtonOns at that point, so I sadly do not have any personal memories attached to them. I do however think it was a neat idea to let a child wear an image of their favorite hero or villain just by putting a button hole to slip a button through…and that you could have worn one even if your shirt didn’t have a button.
I really couldn’t find anything online about how long this series of button adornments lasted, though I did find a Flickr account that showed the Cabbage Patch Kids at least also were available as ButtonOns. Anyone else have memories of Playskool’s ButtonOns?
