50's & 60's Toys


Hi, precious friends!

I grew up in the 50's and 60's.  One day, a friend and I were talking about the toys we used to play with then, as opposed to the modern day toys.  This page contains some of those toys.  I will add more as I think of them (suggestions are welcome).  I hope they bring back memories for you like they did for me!  Enjoy the nostalgia! Incidentally, when someone asks me if I remember a certain toy and I don't, I usually refer them to Time Warp Toys When you get to that site, click the Ctrl key and the letter "F" at the same time (that is the "FIND" key), then type in what you're looking for (for example, "building toys").  If that doesn't find what you're looking for, the owner's email address is TimeWarpToys@aol.com.  Just email her and ask if she can help you.    I added #76-#99 at the bottom of this page on 11/23/12. 

Be blessed!
Peggy

One of my absolute favorite games, even today.  If I could still sit on the floor with my legs spread, and get up again, I would still play them! Peggy :)
