Neat item Nev, thanks for showing us. However you just did Burnie a favor! He most likely will be bidding on it like on everything else he has been bidding on.  :lol:  Be prepared to say goodbye to that book and record once burnie see this post.

I have a third book/record combo from the same company. It is titled Black Dragon Bog, and if you go by the KSR numbers it came out before the other two.  Nev- these do not relate to actually playing D&D so Scott does not list these and other items on the acaeum. This is where we get back into the lunch boxes, flashlights, and birthday party items etc....

If anyone is interested someone could add these items to the TSR Stocklist and make it more complete.

These record/books are manufactured by "Kid Stuff" records and tapes not TSR so they should not be added to the stock list. I do believe we need a list of every D&D related item TSR licenced(clay sets, costumes, shrinkydinks, etc.). I like finding wierd stuff like this.

It has been discussed in other threads from time to time, but I don't think its been done yet. We need an obsessed collector of TSR kitsch to start a TSR licensed bric-a-brac subweb!

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

The TSR Press Kits include the catalog for that year but usually have a bunch of extra stuff too.  This one includes:

* a nice TSR cardboard box
* 1996 TSR Product Catalog
* Dark Sun & Birthright Conspectus
* AD&D Window cling
* Dragon Month flyer
* TSR Retail Shopping Bag note
* TSR Profit Center flyer
* Tactical Sales Report (Winter 1996) Vol 1 #1
* Your Guide to Selling the World's Greatest Adventure Games
* Wizards of the Coast Catalog
* cardboard shelf hangers with setting names

Basically, they contain more info on TSR's pitch to help sell products and how to market them, etc.  I'll take a quick photo.

What I like about the press kits is that they often give TSR's marketing info and some numbers that reflect the industry.

* annual retain sales of over $150,000,000
* customers return visits average between 2-3 a month with estimated average purchases of $100 per month
* 55% of potential young players are in the 8th-9th grade
* 90% male 10% female
* most consider themselves above average students
* high interest in computer games
* aspire to cerebral professions
* television viewing is average; preferring action, sports & mystery
* takes part in outdoor sports less often; also less likely to play cards, chess, checkers
* reads lots of comics
* vivid imagination; invents his own games to play with friends
* 6,000,000 active players in America and more than 20,000,000 occassional players
