Toys from my childhood

I was born in 1953. We didn’t have video games. We had physical toys and playing cards. We glued cars together from kits. Here are some of the toys:

Lincoln Logs

Silly Putty

Erector Sets

Pick-Up Sticks

Super Ball

Hula Hoop



Train set

Chemistry set


The History Channel ran a series called The Toys That Built America.

My generation was the first exposed to and motivated by toy ads on TV.
