I recently purchased a little catalog of toys from the mid 50’s and finally opened it up and looked at it….I was shocked, so many of the toys I had or asked for from Santa….and a chance to see the prices. I figured I would take a few posts and share some of these wonderful memories with all of you.
This was from a store in Washington called Norberry’s, they must have come out with this catalog at Christmas possibly! Now I was born in 1954, so I was too young at the time this catalog came out, but 99% of these toys were still around by the time I was interested in the late 50’s early 60’s. If fact, Santa brought a few…:) So enjoy…..click on the photo and it should get larger for you to see up close….
I recently realized one of my favorite vintage children’s book artists also made dolls, her name is Ruth Newton and I am on the hunt for a set of these sweet rubber dolls…..
And look! The set was 1.98!!!!!!!!!
And we all love the Fisher Price old timers….the graphics, the colors, look what they went for then…..
You could get this whole page for about $25.00 !
Those of you that collect tin dollhouse memorabilia, look at the Renwal furniture sets!!!!! Incredible! And who didn’t have at least one set of these toy dishes in their childhood?
And all of these fun metal stoves and such….look at that hutch!!!!!
I have one of the stoves now, but boy, it doesn’t look this anymore…as a child I had the same stove, but the red graphics were a sweet blue….
All of these bring back such memories, either I was lucky to have them or a friend…..I had the bassinet, but I would love to have that highchair, and crib, all metal and it perfect shape! And a whole $30.00 for this page…sigh…..:)
OK….that is all for today….it has 54 pages of nostalgia…and I will share them a few pages at a time….fun, huh???? I got this catalog at an antique store, but it was worth every penny I paid! A whole $5.95!
Think what I could have had out of the catalog for that price! lol
Thanks for stopping by…..
