I am working on a project that centres on postwar American toys and I was wondering if anyone knew of any archives for toy manufacturers or retailers? The National Museum of Play has a lot of useful collections, but does anyone know if the likes of Hasbro and Mattel have archives acccessible to researchers? Toys 'r' Us (now that they are bankrupt)? Wal-Mart? FAO Schwartz? Other companies?
Suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance!
