Yesterday I attended the summer edition of the Burlington Toy Show (presented by RPG Events). This edition of the BTS featured a wide variety vendors selling all sorts of toys and collectibles from new to vintage classic toys.
Actually… a lot of vintage and classic toys. There seems to be a trend at the local toy show circuit of late 80’s/early 90’s toys making an appearance. I have been finding more and more C.O.P.S., Dick Tracy and MASK toys. Dick Tracy wasn’t as popular as expected in the 90’s, but the toys are very stylistic and cool.
