Description
All but obsolete in a world of video games and remote control helicopters, tin toys were once a staple of childhood in the 1950s and 60s. Now those same toys have become collectible nostalgia items—hard to find and even harder to afford. This glossy catalog is stuffed with beautifully preserved examples of robots, rocket ships, spacemen, and moon buggies of the era, from the world-class collection of tin toy museum founder Teruhisa Kitahara. Here too are tin carnival rides, animated figures, horserace games, Santa Claus sleighs, famous characters like Mickey Mouse and Popeye, movie monsters, and lots of big, chrome-encrusted cars. You get hours of on-the-floor memories in a convenient, lap-ready package.
