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.

The Buddy "L" Museum
Monday, December 5, 2016 Overcast with flurries 2 Celsius 36 Fahrenheit
The Buddy "L" museum is an actual museum and has an informative website on the Internet. Not only do they have Buddy "L"toys, but they have Sturditoy, Keystone, Steelcraft, and other brand of toys. I wrote to the Museum, and received a reply from Mr. Jeff Richards who wrote to say that I have their permission to use their photos. The Museum not only collects toys, but buys and appraises toys as well. Many of the toys that are presented on their website have been donated to the museum, which is a non-profit organization. The site has information on the companies of the toys they have.
They also happens to be consultants to American Pickers, the TV show about antiques and collectibles.
Thanks for dropping by, and as always, Have a great part of the day or night, Wherever you may be. Stacey Bindman firstname.lastname@example.org
