Kiddie City Circular - Guess the Year


When do you think this circular was distributed? It's from Kiddie City, a no longer existing toy store that was in Philadelphia.

1991?

Ok, is there a prize or just the satisfaction of a correct answer?
Well... This is the Tyco little Mermaid (the bangs on the Mattel’s are different) and not the Mattel version that released in 1994. Shani dolls, 90210 dolls and Limited Edition Vanna White Doll were first released in 1992. The Beauty and the Beast stuff started showing up in Xmas of 1991. My guess is 1993 because it says all Mermaid stuff is on sale. New Mattel Mermaid stuff couldn’t be counted in that. So 1993

1991 Would be my guess.

That is when both the Beverly Hills 90210 dolls and the Shani dolls debuted.

No prize - this time ;-D - but Ms. Leo comes closest to the date.

December 1992 is the year and month.

Thanks for your guesses.

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks! WOW! Times have changed. Now they would never put newly released dolls on sale and not in December!
