Lovely memories Jodi in your previos post.
I love these catalogue pictures and can see why you keep them.
Loved catalogues as a child and would spend hours dreaming too.

Neato! So wonderful to see these images...they do predate me by a few years, (a child of the 60's) but I do recognize the Lincoln Logs (always played with those at the grandparents house) and the old Milton Bradley games...Candyland and Chutes & Ladders!

Don't want to admit it, but yes!! How neat! You are a master with, I guess, Photoshop. I love your header and decorations. Cool!

Oh my goodness! I remember many of these toys and oogleing the catalogs as well. I see my trusty Velocipede (tri-cycle)(Mine was a beautiful deep metalic green, The Game of States, Lincoln Logs, and the Gyroscope. Many of my friends had the other toys and games. What fun memories!!

yes, I do remember all these toys and catalogues, being a child of the 50'ties, it is really fun to see the things again and I remember using a lot of time reading the catalogues over and over again, and did you have lego bricks at that time or even lego wooden toys ? The Lego factory started as a wooden toy factory and invented the plastic brick in the 50ties ! oh, fun, have a nice Christmas hugs from the North Niels/bibfessor

Hi Niels...

You mentioned 'Lego's' so I just had to respond.... One of my very first jobs that I had at Sears in 1969 was in the Toy Dept. at Christmas Time (actually I worked in the candy dept but I had a really outgoing personality so they moved me to the Toy Dept) and my job... Demostrating a New Type of Plastic Blocks called 'Lego's! They had been around for awhile of course but were just getting them in certain stores in the US... WHAT A BLAST!!! I had so much fun, was given instructions on how to assemble and demonstrate by the men in suits right from Denmark...
I must say...it was a very Fun First Job....

well, then I have to show you these two links, http://www.lego.com/eng/info/default.asp?page=timeline6 where you can read that in the same year as I am born, 49, the brick was invented ! and I remember in 57, when we could get a brick with light inside !! and in my toy store we could buy one single brick at a time ! that was just like a hardware store ! and there was en exhibit in Copenhagen, where they built Empire State building ! oh, it was fun and I am looking forward to next or next year again, when my grandkid gets old enough to play with lego ! now I stop, have a really nice Christmas !
