Toys - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

The prompt for Week 7 of 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History is Toys.

What was your favorite childhood toy? Is it still being made in some form today?

Don't know that I had a favorite.  Looks like I played with a lot of stuff (not all toys) in my first six years:
1958 - teething ring tub toy
1957 - TV antenna

1962 - doll
1960 - rocking horse
1957 - Teddy bear
1960 - Play-Doh

1962 - doctor kit
1958 - Coke bottles

  1. The cocaa cola bottles reminded me of when I would open up the bottom kitchen drawer which held the pie and cake tins ---- a veritable treasure trove of toys for toddlers. Thanks for the pictures.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Joan! I noticed my offspring preferred to play with stuff in the cabinets and boxes that things came in, too. Here's a link to toys from the 1960s.

  3. Love the Photos! They are wonderful. It pays to bet the oldest. Parents always take great pictures of the first born. LOL. Not so many of the last.

  4. You are right about that, Tracy! If I hadn't gotten a camera, I'm not sure there would be any pictures of my youngest sister!
