During our treasure hunting excursion, besides finding great things for myself/our home, I love finding inexpensive toys for Gwyn. I mostly can't stand most plastic stuff, and especially some of the noisy ones we have been given ... but I do love a good classic spring operated toy.
This typewriter was a great find! It doesn't work entirely smoothly but G sure loves it and it's really kind of funny. I never had this one as a kid, but it brings back memories of a different time.
I don't know how old this 'Fun Camera' is but it has a certain style that modern toy cameras don't. They new ones are all so rounded and bubble like. This one simply changed a coloured filter in the view finder when you push the blue winder, and makes a click sound when you push the red button.
Gwyn's grandparents got her a toy cell phone for Christmas which she likes, because it's like mum and dad's, but we do have a rotary phone in the house too (not hooked up) so she gets the idea with this guy ... I definitely remember this one as a kid
and of course the Happy Apple ... I'm not sure who doesn't remember this one with it's lovely chimes
What were your favorite classic toys as a kid? We are currently on the hunt for that Fisher Price Record player that winds up!
Have a lovely Thursday!
