are toys that were aimed at younger children that involved doing things
like colouring in and playing with plasticine. Due to the play and
throw away nature of these toys, they are rare and it is difficult to
find mint examples or examples at all for some of these items.
produced a 3-D Poster Art set. You could colour in scenes from the Star
Wars movies and make up a 3-D paper Darth Vader mask. The picture shown
is from the catalogue as very few examples of this remain.
produced 5 character masks designed to fit a small child. These masks
are made of fragile breakable plastic, and again, very few survive due
to the throwaway nature of the toy. Darth Vader can be seen bottom left,
Stormtrooper is bottom middle, C3PO is bottom left, Sandpeople is
middle right and Chewbacca is bottom right in the group of Star Wars
produced a Star Wars themed Play-Doh Adventure Modelling set. The box
for this features 2 small children playing with the set. The Palitoy
logo is in the bottom right hand corner and the Play-Doh logo is in the
top left hand corner. Again, it is difficult to pick these up with
unused Play-Doh. Inside there are 2 containers of Play-Doh included.
These have a yellow and pink lid and contain Play-Doh of the same colour
as shown on the box. The one shown here has different coloured Play-Doh
however and comes with green and red lids. The set also included 3
plastic shapes with Star Wars characters outlined which you could
squeeze together that you could use to make figures with the Play-Doh.
The figures you could make were Luke & a lightsaber, Leia &
R2-D2 and Darth Vader & lightsaber as each plastic shape has 2
outlines. There is also a flat piece of cardboard with a Star Wars
space scene on it which you could stick your Play-Doh Star Wars figures
on. This comes rolled up inside the box. A yellow spatula is also
included for shaping the Play-Doh. Lastly there is white spaceship that a
Play-Doh Luke and R2-D2 can be inserted into it that looks a little
like the X-Wing Fighter.
also produced a Palitoy logoed version of the Dip Dots painting set
which is more commonly seen as Kenner. Again, these are very rare. This
set featured 16 pages of Star Wars adventure scenes which could be
painted, along with non spill Dip Dots paints and a paint brush. The
front of the box features a child painting a scene of a TIE Fighter
chasing an X-Wing. The back of the box has instructions for use along
with another picture of 2 children painting a scene with C3PO. There is
also mention of the Poster Art Set featured in the catalogue above, and
also the Playnts Painting Set which featured 4 big posters and Playnts
in four bright colours to colour them in.
