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.
I get a fair amount of e-mail asking me if I know where to get toy parts. I have several sources, and one of them is Rick's Toybox, that you can find on ebay, where Rick has a store. Not only does Rich have toy parts, but he also sells toys and decals of all sorts. I decided to revisit him today, and I discovered that he has expanded his toy parts and decals quite a lot.
