Vintage Toys I

Esteemed Readers, this year I’m going to share with you  some images of vintage toys. Perhaps, some ones are familiar to you. As a toy maker I’m interested in the toy history as toys of the past were different. They demanded a lot of imagination & skills. Besides, there was no industry, all of them were hand-made. Let’s plunge into old pictures to smile & to admire what a human being might create!

The first set represents crocheted toys of 1970s.

  1. How cute. I can see these in the washing machine quite often. (of course, if they were given to a boy) Thanks, Dear Maria.

      😁😁😁 All for you, my dear friend John! Which one would you prefer? How it goes with the tour? I hope it is giving a desired result. 🙂

      • The tour is going well. I think the book is well-received and folks seem to be enjoying the excerpts. There are 11 four and five-star reviews on US Amazon so that is good. I think the elephant is a preference do to my enjoyment of Bar Bar the elephant when I was a boy.

        👍👍👍🍤🍤🍤🍻 My congratulations, dear John! Let him be Babar II. 😁😁😁 I made a post about Babar some years ago. You know that Gregory was fond of him as well. I even brought him some DVD from the French cultural center & we watched them together.

      • I think that would be a wonderful sight. You and Gregory enjoying Babar together. I always thought the stories were good but I was only five at the time. I remember looking forward to the stories.

        😁😁😁 Gregory liked the full length animation movie a lot. We watched in French as you comprehend. Try to find the full movie if you have not seen it yet. It is very interesting. It tells the beginning of Babar’s adventures. It was funny with him: he was sitting on my shoulder watching attentively… How incredible these parrots are! What I like about Babar is that it is a wise animation. It teaches good things & transmits good values! I can imagine your excitement, dear John! Oh, sweet memories of us, oldies! 😁😁😁

      • Sometimes the sweet memories of the oldsters is better than a movie. By the way you are hardly an oldster. So you have sweet memories of a youngster. 🍰🥂.

  2. Bela postagem, Maria. Você tem razão, os brinquedos mais antigos exigiam habilidades e imaginação e em particular a maioria deles de uso manual. Ou seja, a criança se valia da sua inteligência, sensibilidade também para usá-los. Não sou contra a tecnologia ao contrário mas como ferramenta meio nunca o fim. Um grande abraço carinhoso, querida.🌷

  3. These toys are simply wonderful!
