All I want for Christmas are vintage toys.
Tin toys are my favorite things that I like best. . .
Unlike plastic they outlast the rest.
Some may no longer work because they’ve been wound too tight. . .
Still, just looking at them brings me such delight!
Desks made of wood are so very sweet. . .
If I was still in school I’d gladly take a seat!
This old dolly would make me twirl. . .
I’d take her any day over an ‘American Girl’!
Cars, and trucks that even the grands still like,
Every now and then we need to tell technology to take a hike!
Doll houses and barns, and Frontier Forts made of wood.
Oh, how I’d go back in time. . .if I could!
Tops that twirl and some that spin,
Bored? No way, for me it’s a win, win!
Now that I’ve shared (some) of my vintage toys.
Guess I’ll step back into reality and enjoy my computer that gives me technological joy!
My little sleigh was made in Germany. I found it at a damaged goods store a few years ago. I have been collecting tin toys for years. Like Frank (from Pickers) they bring me so much joy. I found my large blow mold Santa at a thrift store for $5. Which I didn’t actually pay for. I reached into my purse to pull out my check book only to find that I had left it at home. I asked the cashier if she would hold him while I called my husband and asked him to bring me money. The gentleman in line behind me said, “Let me just pay for it”. I tried to get his address so I could mail the money to him but he refused. The little Santa was found at a yard sale for $5 also. I have bought some of my tin toys, but a lot of them were given to me by my older sister, Dee Dee. Thanks to all of you for bringing me such delight!
