Well, yes but, bear in mind, that at an average salary of $3 a day in 1921, youd have to work 1 1/2 days for a subscription!

I always wanted a viewmaster as a kid. Never got one. My son has three different kinds. I guess I was making up for the fact that I never got one.

When I was 7 years old, my sister bought me a CRISSY DOLL. I loved that doll. You turn this small knob in her back and you could make her hair "grow" or shorten it. I loved that! Abt five years ago in an antique store I found that doll in its original box. I WANTED TO BUY IT SOOOOO BAD!

I remember a Baby Crissy Doll, but, I dont remeber the teenage version which one did you have? I still have my viewmaster, btw, and most of the slides too!
(The viewmaster was a descendant of the Stereoscope...the parlour toy that actually inspired this thread )

I'd expect that to be the rarer (and more $$$) of the two!

Here is something I found immediately on ebay. OMG the memories are flooding back...

Ok, when I was around 8 years old, my sister bought me this tin metal stove and sink with S&H green stamps. Those stamps that grocery stores used to give out with your receipt, depending on the amount of $$$ you spent. Here are pics but keep in mind, these are old and rusty. I kept mine in tip-top condition:

Default BATMAN, BATMAN, BATMAN!!!

Nice little stove, reminds me of one my Mom had that had a little flint and wheel sparker which when you pushed the lever made sparks come out of the burners ( a very sophisiticated toy, for the 1940s, id think )
Anyway, for the whole week, Ive been wondering whether to make a seperate thread for nostalgic toys, but, since you started the ball rolling Irene, I present a toy I used to have, that Id kill for now! (Sadly, it got lost when we moved....it cost me $7, a real fortune for me, at the time!)

Ooooooo nice!
Sparks came out of the burners? Not around these dry parts of California!!!!
Why don't you edit the thread title so it includes toys, maybe that way people will get the idea of the thread. Like this:
NOSTALGIA, TOYS YOU LOVED, ETC.

Not a bad idea at all, Irene ^_^ Ill think about it....my only prob with the idea is, it might make some think "Collector's thread" and scare them off, wheras "Nostalgia" is kind of a "catchall"...maybe i can add the toys thing to the thread explanation on the first post; what do you think?

Does anyone remember this toy? I got it in the early eighties but it originally came out in the seventies. It was my favorite toy to play with and I had hours of fun setting up ramps and having the Evel Knievel doll on the motorcycle jumping over various things I would set up. Those were the days!

It sort of reminds me of Al Pacino in Scarface, sans the moustache.

All that doll needed was a hairy chest and gold medallions around its neck.
