Untitled[edit]

I edited the link to Crissy to go to the actual article for the doll rather than a link to an edit page.--Starladustangel 07:19, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

I have an old Toy boat called the Phantom Freighter made by Ideal. It opens up to a battleship type of boat. It is battery powered. Does anyone have any more information on this toy? Buckw23:14, 3 September 2006

Ideal doll missing from the list[edit]

Seems the Toni has been overlooked in the list of dolls. Came in three or four sizes with a (toy) Toni home permanent kit. Try to buy this doll today for less than sixty dollars! Anewcharliega (talk) 00:49, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Ideal Toy Company or Ideal Toy Corporation?[edit]

The name as used in copyright registrations is "Ideal Toy Corp." (Ideal Toy Corporation), not "Ideal Toy Company."

See http://books.google.com/books?ei=RShpTfCvKJGWsgPu7bmmBAt&id=DB0hAQAAIAAJ&dq=copyright+Ideal+Toy&ots=jzQ4y43Cbu&q=ideal-toy-corp

This page should be renamed with a redirect from the current incorrect name. Guy Macon 16:55, 26 February 2011 (UTC)


Further info: There was a trademark awarded ( http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4003:tcp6oq.2.5 ) on January 12, 1965 to "IDEAL TOY CORPORATION NEW YORK 184-10 JAMAICA AVE. HOLLIS 23, N.Y."
A further trademark search seems to show one particular design (angular, not the usual Ideal football shape) that was registered in 2001 and abandoned in 2002 by one "Ideal Toy Company, Inc" in Ronkonkoma NY, long after the mergers that ended up with Ideal being part of Mattel, and the term "ideal toy" trademarked by one "Poof-Slinky" in 2003 and abandoned in 2004, then later Poof-Slinky registered the same angular trademark discussed above in 2007. I don't believe any of these had any connection to the Ideal this page covers. Guy Macon

Another missing Ideal toy[edit]

See http://randomactsofgeekery.blogspot.com/2008/08/cool-stuff-coloring-books-and-more.html about Ideal's Klikit. Hope this helps! Darci (talk) 02:51, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Redlinked Products[edit]

More than half of the products listed here are redlinked. I'm going to remove all redlink, if no one has any objections. --FeldBum (talk) 01:40, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

The lists here are in need of cleanup, but beyond just a blanket removal of redlinks. A lot of the redlinks could/should probably be left as the products are notable, while other entries should be renamed/redicted or deleted outright (as duplicates or for other reasons.) I did a quick, rough cleanup of the doll lists, see diff: [1] Siawase (talk) 09:24, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Cross Fire[edit]

I've seen some 1970s (1971?) Crossfire (board game) sets on ebay with the Ideal Toy Company logo, the crossfire board game page though implies it was always a Milton Bradley product, and I'm not sure which is correct; it would seem from the date of the famous 1990s tv commercials that Milton Bradley must have owned the product by 1991 and likely earlier.
