Arizona Toy and Advertising Roundup: Youngsters will get a kick out of this gala array of collectible playthings from the turn of the century to tomorrow--with emphasis on toys from the Star Wars, Star Trek, Mattel and Barbie universes--but their folks are the true targets of the nostalgia fest for big kids. It's slated for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the North Hall at Veterans' Memorial Coliseum, 19th Avenue and McDowell. Admission is $3; fairgrounds parking is $2 per car. For details call 258-6711.

Harlem Globetrotters: The 'trotters are 70 years young. "Sweet Georgia Brown" remains the team's theme song, and an interactive mix ofhot hoops and silly sight gags is still its raison d'etre. The competition, however, has changed: The hapless Washington Generals have been pastured, replaced by the slightly more competitive International All-Stars. Showtimes are 1 and 7 p.m. Saturday at America West Arena, First Street and Jefferson. Tickets range from $8.50 to $50, available atthe arena and Dillard's. For details call 379-7800 or 678-2222.
