Toys and Novelties

Toys are a super-duper important part of any child's life; often, the world of his or her toys is as real as the material world. Small girls, barely babies themselves, instinctively carry around dolls and hug them close. Toddling boys push around miniature cars and trucks, or carry action figures around like little companions. I know I'm obsessed with my own childhood and everything, but I can remember nearly every single toy I owned from very early on. Why not? Someone once said that the Golden Age was whenever one happened to be ten years old, and he was absolutely correct. Anyway, enjoy reading about some of the toys and other crazy little novelty items of our youth...
