CAPTAIN ACTION DOLL Batman & Robin Costume Outfits VINTAGE TOY AD from 1967

Today I'm really tired from not getting any sleep because of the holiday stress. So, I'm just gonna post this cool photo that was swiped from a vintage 1967 sales catalog. The pic features a vintage toy ad for Ideal's Captain Action & Action Boy Dolls, outfits, & car!! For younger people who have NO idea who C.A. is he was a really great toy line made by the Ideal Toy Company in the 1960's. Basically he was kinda like a G.I.Joe doll except you could buy "Superhero Costumes" for him to wear & he could be Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Spiderman, Captain America, Green Hornet, The Lone Ranger, etc...He had a sidekick named Action Boy who also had superhero costumes like Robin, Tonto, Superboy, etc...Also featured in the ad is a vehicle called the SILVER STREAK AMPHIBIAN which is extremely RARE & highly sought after by toy collectors. I thought I would share this toy ad because it shows the Batman & Robin outfits which are really cool!! I hope this brings back alot of fond memories for older collectors & newbies should do a little research on this great vintage toy too! As always you can click on the small picture up above for a larger, more detailed, photo!! Be sure to check out the BAT-BLOG ARCHIVES for many more Vintage Batman Toy news!
