Toy Commercial Tuesday: Karate Kid

Anyone else remember this line of Karate Kid figures? I have some of the random ninjas, not Daniel or Mr. Miyagi. I’m guessing they came with the rad Karate Kid playset I had as a kid (and still have at my parents’ house) that I never knew the origin of until the last few years when I saw ads for it on the back of comics from the 80s. That’s one childhood mystery solved! Anyway, I love these old toy commercials that show kids both talking about the characters/figures like they’re real people and also controlling their actions at the same time. I’m sure that’s a deep rooted commentary on society or some such, but just look at how well those figures kick ass! I can’t say for sure I used this exact commercial, but I used a lot of commercials like this when I put together my list of greatest action features list for ToyFare. That was a super fun list to put together and was only helped by YouTube!
