POCKET MONEY RANGE
When the hype was at it’s peak, children couldnt get enough ThunderCats toys. The LJN line was highly succesful and toy manufacturers were off to the races, comming up with all sorts of things to get in on the action. UK based toy mogul, RAINBOW TOYS created a line of toys they called the “Pocket Money Range”. This line consists of cheap, mostly generic toys that have been redecoed to fit the look and themes of the ThunderCats. It was basically created to get kids to spend their Pocket Money on more toys, while their parents bought the bigger, more expensive LJN toys.
The pictures and text below are extracts from the RAINBOW TOYS ThunderCats Pocket Money Range Dealer catalog from the collection of Justin Mulder.
