Vintage Simpsons Toys to be Featured in Austin Airport Exhibit

Batman & Robin

If you find yourself with some time to kill at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas (and you’ve already found that magical state of mind between “drunk enough to tolerate flying” and “too drunk to fly”) head over to the Austin Toy Museum exhibit in the post-security pylon showcases.

Featuring a collection of toys that includes cast metal figures, cars, wind-ups, electric trains, and action figures – the “20th Century Toys” display also boasts a complete set of The Simpsons dolls from 1991 (which I’m pretty sure I owned at one point).

Other highlights include a Kewpie doll from 1925, a Lionel steam locomotive from the 1940s, Barbie dolls from 1961-1986, and G.I. Joes repping the Army, Navy, and 1960s NASA space program.

Check it out if you have a free moment. Your flight is probably going to be delayed or canceled anyway.
