This blog discusses old toys from the early 1920's to the end of the 1950's. All kinds of topics are discussed.
The time span was the greatest period for "hands-on" toys, where a young child could actually go outside and play for hours at a time.
You can see the elegance but simple design of these toys. It was a time when huge machines, and people made and finished toys by hand.
The era has long passed, but many of the toys are still around, and that is what I would like to share.

Searching for Information
on your Blogger Blog
A few days ago, I added a post about 2 Vindex toys. Previously, I had a "Eureka Moment" and realized that I could do a search on my blog to find previous similar toys or information. I then decided that would be interesting for anyone who writes a blog, and would like to know about this feature.

The sign-in page
After I signed in, this is the page that appears. It's the 3 blogs that I write.However, I haven't written anything on the other 2 blogs in a long time. Most people who have blogs eventually get tired from writing, or frustrated that there are not many readers coming to the blog.
When I clicked on my "Old Antique Toys" post (previous screen-capture),
a list of the most recent posts show up on this page.
The red line points to "All Labels".
What I then do is type in the word "Vindex". That will show me all of the posts
that I wrote about Vindex toys, or mentioned the name "Vindex".
The results are shown above. I wrote 10 posts or mentioned Vindex in 10 posts on my blog.
From there, I will search out photos and information about Vindex toys for a future post.
in the above screen-capture, you can see that not all of my posts ware popular or have lots of visitors, but that's how it goes! Posts are not always as popular as the interest that I liked in the information on the post.
