About Kenner - Toys & Hobbies

Beginning in the mid-1970s, it was almost impossible to stroll down the toy aisle without being distracted by the siren song of Kenner Toys. As the maker of well-known properties like The Six Million Dollar Man and DC superheroes, Kenner had the advantage of making toys for a ready-made audience. One of the best examples of this is the Kenner Batman line, which spanned the comics, the movies, and the animated television shows and also included equipment and uniforms specific to the toy line. The ground-breaking Kenner Star Wars line solidified the company as a major manufacturer of toys. To say that it revolutionized the concept of action figures and toy collecting is an understatement. At one point, the brand contained more than 100 different action figures and generated more than 300 million dollars in sales. If you grew up as one of those kids who was not allowed to take Luke Skywalker out of the box, now is the time to take advantage of the new and used Kenner action figures sold on eBay.
