(Brrrrr, Still very Cold!)
What's interesting about old toys is their history. When you "dig" long enough, you realize how many companies there were way back then, and that they could all survive in the marketplace. Today, the world economy has changed everything. There were literally thousands of American toy companies once upon a time. From time to time, I come upon names that I haven't heard of and have to check out the source. One day, I 'll have to write a post about all of the sites on the Net that have fabulous references for researchers and toy aficianados alike.
