About Me

My photo
No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

T is for Tony Tigers . . . They'rrre Grrrrrreat!

Obviously I've had the Kellogg's box out and while I was shooting the Magic Roundabout and knights I threw this together!

Advertising Premiums; Coach Tony; Kellogg's Corn Flakes; Kellogg's Premiums; Kellogg's Ricicles; Kellogg's Smacks; Kellogg's Sugar Smacks; Matchbox Toys; MEG; Monsters In My Pocket; Novelties; Novelty Figurines; Plastic Toy Figures; Polyethylene Toy Figures; Premium Flats; Premium Toy Figures; Premiums; Small Scale World; smallscaleworld.blogspot.com; Sports Tony; Tony Badge; Tony The Tiger;
The badge is probably from the 1970's, but I don't know, the five Ashford Mouldings semi-flat Sports Tony's (there's a skier missing) were quite recent as was the Coach Tony; a larger box 'exclusive' from the 1st Monster Wrestlers in my Pocket promotion.

The one's I remember from our childhood were the little (probably R&L) model-kit Tony Tigers, but they are harder to find than most of the above!
