WHAT’S IN YOUR OLD TOY BOX?

Image Remember as children we were told to take care of our toys and they would last forever?  Who would have thought this advice would be to a collector’s benefit?  There is a growing interest in vintage toys.  The workmanship, style, colors, material, and their time in history have made them desirable.  The manner in which they were constructed is a history lesson.  No batteries, no electrical cords, no enter buttons.in push carts, pedal cars, tops, music boxes, banks – and yet many had moving parts.  Image

ImageAnd what do we tell our children and grandchildren today?  Don’t wear down your batteries, where is the power cord, how many texts this month, turn off the computer?

It might be fun to take a look at those old treasures and see what brings back memories.
