#10 – The Adventure People (Top 25 Favorite Vintage Toys)

Just like the kids in the video, I played with my Adventure People sets outdoors, more so than with other action figures. I guess the ads worked: these toy characters wanted “adventure,” and there is more adventure outside in tall grass and gardens than indoors.

I had a few sets. Sea, medical, but what I most remember is the Safari Adventure People set. Lions, tigers, zebras, cages, jeep and safari dude.  Way cool!  When digging up a garden in the yard of my childhood home, one or two “Adventure People” were rescued from their soil imprisonment.  What years of “adventure” they had under the grass!
