A delightful flashback to your youth

Even if they don’t collect toys, older people will find this book fun to look through. Most of the classic toys such as Lincoln Logs and Tinkertoys are listed as well as many of the marketing tie-ins from the first Star Wars movie.
For each toy there is a high quality image as well as a caption containing information such as history, what the toy did and the date of introduction when known. The toys are categorized based on the manufacturer and most sections
