          Sid James Pot Black Snooker?

                  Re: Argos Catalogue - 1979 - Toy pages 1 to 12

                  The Family Tree House is still around at my folks - now being played with/abused by a new generation.

                  I've seen a couple of variations online too. One was a firehouse, and the other was a licensed item I think.

                  And the train... Whistling swine.

                    Probably because I would turn around and say things like 'ooh, look at the Knight Rider Stuntbuster set!'

                        That brings back memories, I'll be here all day listing all the toys from those pages I had the chance to play with, so I'll just mention the

                        Maximus - Is it just me or did he look just like Gerald from Pidgeon Street?

                        Stuntbuster - I had the Knight Rider version, might still have some of the barrels & crates that came with it somewhere.

                        Streak Racing - The glow in the dark version was fun to play with the lights out

                        Construction Site - This is somewhere in my parents loft, might even have some of the accessories to it.

                          Me, my brother & sister had a lot of those toys between us, & knew people who had many more.

                            haha! although I was born in '79 I do remember that shape sorter in the 2nd picture! (although I'm sure that mine was blue and red! and it didn't have a head on the top of it!) Hmm...

                            Brilliant piccies! I will have to scan my '88 Argos soon.

                              More Ghostbusters, plus Supernaturals, Thundercats, Transformers and BraveStarr. (unfortunately I don't have the rest of this catalogue)

                                Great pics,I would imagine that old argos catalogues are worth a fair amount of money nowadays,I just wish I'd of kept mine.
