1985 was a very good year, films like Back to the Future and the Goonies were released, our TV Schedules were full of amazing shows that we had to watch every week and the toys were amazing! When it came to choosing the toys we wanted, many of us would flick through a catalogue and circle the things we dreamed of getting! Probably the most flicked through catalogue was the Argos catalogue and in 1985 it had some amazing toys – See for yourself in the pages below.
