We bounced around on several ideas for VintageToyBuyers.com logo but there was one thing that we always planned on incorporating. What makes a toy company more recognisable than having famous characters on the logo? We could have gone with any combination of famous toys over the years but decided on these seven figures because they each appeal to different demographics – even within the toy world.
The first character on the logo is the most famous and successful toy of all time. Barbie has been a member of most households that have little girls throughout the world since the 60’s. This makes it easily recognisable for even those of us that never had one. The next character is Cobra from popular toy collection G.I. Joe. Any young boy that was growing up in the 80’s would recognise it.
The third toy to make it is Batman. This DC Comics character has had multiple films, TV shows and toys over the last 60 years. Fronting the logo is He-Man – one of the most successful toy lines in history. If you were a child living through the nineties then it was more likely than not that you owned or played with one of these toys. Darth Vader also makes the logo. Probably the biggest villain in movie history, Star Wars toys have been a phenomenon since the first movie in 1977.
