Take a look at page 3 in this 1983 newspaper and you’ll find a Playland Toy Stores ad which includes Kenner’s Star Wars Jabba the Hutt action figure/playset set and TSR’s Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game? Can you even get any more Christmas in the eighties than Star Wars toys and D&D?
December 16, 1982. I’ll never get tired of looking at these fabulous newspaper ads of the eighties, especially when Kenner’s Strawberry Shortcake line makes an appearance. Here we see a game, stuffed animals, as well as the doll-like action figures — or is it action figure-like dolls? — and two of the Strawberry Shortcake vehicles. I know Barbie has had vehicles...

I’m personally more interested in the Strawberry Shortcake action figure dolls than the larger dolls, but regardless of my tastes I have just gotta stop when I run across something this fun.
This comic book ad for the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game (find at Amazon.com*) was burned so deep into my brain when I was a kid that I was sure I’d shared it here before. Nope.
