Although there may be way more to the web site than simply hilarious photos from the previous, we determined to let the creator of the web site Brian Heiler (in any other case generally known as Brick Mantooth on social media) clarify extra to Bored Panda in regards to the platform he created.

“I started the PlaidStallions blog to cover my obsessions about growing up in the ’70s and ’80s. Things like department store catalogs, vintage toys, fashion, obscure TV, and movies, all of it done with a dose of humor. I was blown away by the positivity and support that I was shown from all over the world. That led me to publish my first book ‘Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings’ and now I’m working on a second book called ‘Mall of Justice’ and launched a quarterly magazine called ‘Toy-Ventures’ devoted to toys from the 1960s-’80s which is now on its third issue. Starting this site changed my life for the better and I have never regretted it.

By the way, the name ‘Plaid Stallions’ came from me putting photos of ’70s leisure suit models in my locker in high school back in the late 1980s.”
