#757 FIGURAS EN ACCIÓN (F.E.A.) Nr. 15
In May 2014 we decided to make a special issue dealing with toys and horror. At the time, I had in mind a lot of ideas of special issues we could explore and publish in the future. One of them was an issue dealing exclusively with toy shops, that is, the space in which the toys are displayed for the customers to purchase them.
The usual group of collaborators have gathered a collection of articles and interviews about this topic. I have written an article about the history of toy stores and collaborated in an article that searchs for the main characteristics of each type of toy shop (together with my friend Pablo from Coleccionismo80-90).
There are two interviews with the owners of two toy shops that are/were over 100 years old and another article about F.A.O. Schwarz, which is the most famous toy shop there has ever been.
To finalise the issue, there is a nostalgic article about toy stores that each of us (the magazine staff) remember from our childhood.
Very unusual issue! Download it HERE. Thanks!
