Tardy the Man Pony, and other crappy vintage toys that never existed

The artwork of Randy Regier channels the dime store toy aisles and the flashy comic book advertisements of the 1950s and 1960s. His toys promise rip-roaring thrills on their colorful packages...and deliver confusion, horror, and crushing disappointment once de-boxed.

The artwork of Randy Regier channels the dime store toy aisles and the flashy comic book advertisements of the 1950s and 1960s. His toys promise rip-roaring thrills on their colorful packages...and deliver confusion, horror, and crushing disappointment once de-boxed. Let's take a look at some of Randy's unabashedly rip-off playthings like... Tardy the Man Pony. I find Tardy to be really disturbing, although much worse exists out there. Something about Tardy just seems sinister and unwholesome.
