It always great for us fans of the Retro to find a book that sheds light on the toys of our youth. It is doubly great when said book has been written by fellow Retroist contributor Doug McCoy and covers over 70 toys from the 1970s and 1980s! As always Doug shares his own humorous personal experiences with the toys in his new book and that ranges from View-Master Reels to Colorforms to Gayla Kites and the popular action figures of our youth to name just a few.

You can pick up Doug’s latest book for a mere $0.99 over Smashwords and Amazon.Com! Make sure to leave a review after reading the book and help spread the joy of toys to you friends!
