#172 LA EDAD DE ORO DEL JUGUETE ESPAÑOL (JAVIER LÓPEZ)



This book offers a great insight in the most renowned Spanish figure toy-lines from the 60s, 70s and the 80s. In 92 pages, the author writes about 7 different figure lines: Madelman, Geyperman, Airgam Boys, Playmobil/Famobil, Comansi’s indians and cowboys, Comanboys and Montaplex.

Very amusing to read, this book is something halfway between an informative book (handbook) and a collection of memories. There are many personal stories and anecdotes that make the reading easier and give the needed background to understand certain things that might have changed since them.

The book comes with many pictures (in colour) to illustrate certain lines and pieces, and it’s available in Bubok for 12,50 Euros + shipping costs or 3,50 Euros as eBook. 

“La Edad de Oro…” is on its way to become a “best-seller” among the books dealing with toys written in Spanish: many collectors, nostalgic people and toy-lovers already have their own!

About the Author: Javier López is the coordinator of the magazine “Figuras en Acción” and also the owner of the blog “El Dragón Dorado”, in which he shares opinions and information since more than 4 years now. He is a great expert in Madelman and Geyperman (G.I.Joe/ Action Man) lines.
