The Encyclopedia of Fast Food Toys: Jack in the Box to White Castle Book Review

About the Book: Welcome to the exciting world of fast food collectibles! This comprehensive book presents a thorough and entertaining guide to the multitude of kid's meal premiums distributed by fourteen quick service restaurants (other than McDonald's) from January 1990 through late 1998. This colorful assortment of restaurants includes Jack in the Box, KFC, K-Mart, Long John Silver's, Pizza Hut, Roy Rogers, Sonic, Subway, Taco Bell, Target, Wal-Mart, Wendy's, Whataburger, and White Castle. Starting with the beginning of the fast food toy explosion, this definitive volume identifies, describes, and lists prices for over 570 kid's meal promotions from the 1990s. More than 550 full color photos document this awesome array of premiums dating from this decade alone. Many of the toys depict colorful characters from such popular companies as Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera, Inc., Viacom International, Hasbro, Inc., Twentieth Century Fox Universal City Studios, Inc., DC Comics, Mars, Inc., The Coca-Cola Company, and more. The informative text includes a brief history of each corporation and their cast of characters, plus check-off boxes to help you organize your expansive collection. Additionally, the authors have provided a numbering system that identifies every item in the book.

Our Take: We have partnered with Schiffer books to begin reviewing their various collector's guides and reference books.  We are lifelong collectors, my wife and I, and amongst the largest of our collections (and the funnest) is fast food toys.  We collect all types from Disney to Batman and onward.  This book is part two of a two-part review.  The Encyclopedia of Fast Food Toys: Jack In The Box to White Castle.  The book begins with the year 1990 and goes through 1998

This guide is more of the same from the first edition.  It finishes the alphabetical listing of various fast food toy collectibles.  To have a reference guide like this of what is out there to bring along with you in the field is priceless.  There SO many sets out there that no one can remember them all.  Plus, this may reveal to you 3 and under toys and help you to identify exactly what you're searching for to complete your collection with full color images and a helpful checklist.  These two books are  a MUST have for any serious collector.
