Milton_Bradley redirects to Milton_Bradley_Company. Maybe there should be a disambiguation page. Because of the redirect, when the name 'Milton Bradley' is linked on this page (referring to the person), it is a circular link that doesn't go anywhere, basically making the link useless at best and incorrect at worst. There is a link to Milton Bradley (the person) in the first para, referring to the founder of the company, and in the last para, referring to a baseball player. -- JunkCookie 15:38, Jul 29, 2004 (UTC)

Done. I've added a bio of Milton Bradley (the founder of the company). No need for a separate disambig page, just added some disambiguation to the bottom. (P.S. Don't forget to sign your comments with "-- ~~~~".) -- Netoholic 00:50, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Done. Thx -- JunkCookie 15:38, Jul 29, 2004 (UTC)

Any chance we could include some info on the T.H.I.N.G.S. line, as well as its own list of games? Sprinter h 04:19, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Way too many wrong redirects[edit]

If a game is ambiguous with, say, a TV show, the link directs to the TV show. Example: Shark Attack AkvoD3 16:51, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Worse yet, several of the dates seem wrong as well; e.g. "Hands Down" is dated 1990 here, but I definitely recall playing this in the '60s. (talk) 20:41, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Milton Bradley logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Milton Bradley logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

List order[edit]

Would it possibly be better to have the games in a release date order, like a filmography would be? Slavlin (talk) 04:31, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Removed "Sorry"[edit]

I removed Sorry from the list because it is made by Parker Brothers, not Milton Bradley. --Soopto (talk) 22:08, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Added History[edit]

I'm part of a college class that's editing stubs and my group chose the Milton Bradley Company. I've added the history section and there will be more to come from my other group members.Hmiller00 (talk) 20:21, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm not so sure of the accuracy of "In 1920, it absorbed the game production of McLoughlin Brothers" because I have seen a 1909 "Bradley Village" which replace the McLoughlin Bros's "Pretty New Village." Also Strong dates this set c.1900 - And it looks earlier than the 1909 one i saw. -- user:Frederika Eilers 10 May 2012 —Preceding undated comment added 14:52, 10 May 2012 (UTC).

Logo History[edit]

I was wondering if we could include here all of the known logos of Milton Bradley on this page. There are three that I remember fondly.

The first is a black and white logo reading "MB" with "MILTON BRADLEY" below (on two lines), used from the 1950s to 1965. From 1965 to 1978, a colored logo appeared in the form of a red M and blue B. Both of these logos were seen amid rectangles that also show a key (seen diagonally) and the blurb "ANOTHER KEY TO FUN AND LEARNING."

By late 1978, the blurb was edited only to read "KEY TO FUN" and the red-and-blue "MB" lettering was made bolder in appearance. A horizontally-laid gold key is seen below the new 1978 MB motif. This logotype continued until a few years following Hasbro's 1984 acquisition of MB.
