Vintage toys 60s/70s
I loved spirograph - hours and hours of creativity!
DYMO Label Makers who was the KING of DIY. I have such fond memories whenever I see a vintage DYMO label.
The View Master.one of my very favorite toys as a kid. I could sit and look at the pictures for a long time! Everything from scenery to Disney caracters, and everything in between.
Use Spirograph to make seven- folds designs, developed by British engineer Denys Fisher and first sold in
My Childhood Memories
SPEARS GAMES I remember this game but with a huge orange wedge of cheese instead of the bucket. Can't remember how we played it but it was a game for pre-schoolers!
KENNER: 1962 Give-A-Show Projector. I have never received a more exciting toy before or after this one.
Vintage Board Games
I remember trying to play "Mousetrap". By the time we had the board ready, we didn't play the game; we just played with the marble that went down the chute.
Wooden toy piano, I had a red one.
later Dad would make them frm the old wooden sewing cotton spools with 4 tiny nails hammered on top. We then used off-cuts of coloured wool and one of Mum's crochet hooks. Lots of fun and we called it "French Knitting".
I can still remember making these! Took a lot of patience and fine motor control, weaving in and out but looked good when you' finished.
