Throwback Thursday: 1978-1979 Avalon Catalog!

We have a very special Throwback Thursday today as we look through the 1978 - 1979 Avalon catalog!

In 1978, Avon was riding the successful wave of Sesame Street and The Muppet Show with all manner of craft toys featuring the Muppets. This catalog was given to toy dealers and stores to show off their upcoming products and hasn't been seen by the general public until now!

Keep a look out for other 1970's favorites like Ziggy, Raggedy Anne and Andy and The Amazing Spider Man too!

Be sure to click on the pictures to get a closer look!

Since this was not intended for the general public, the catalog also showcases various retail displays stores could use to entice people to buy the products.

Anyone remember Sand Art? Ah, the 1970's...

Thanks for leafing through the catalog, be sure to "dog ear" the pages that have want you want and get your orders in soon!
