Movies and TV shows featured spies including James Bond and Mission Impossible. Barbie and GI-Joe from earlier years were adapting to the changing times, all these together offered great scope for the toy manufacturers, So it was a great year to be a kid and a supplier as can be seen in the range of popular toys above.
