Perfectly titled book. It's a delightful treat simply to turn each page, view the photos of familiar and beloved toys and games from my childhood (1950s-60s), and exclaim to no one in particular, "I had one of those!" Mouse Trap, Mr. Potato Head, Cootie Bug, Etch-a-Sketch, Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, View Master, Tammy doll, Pick-up-sticks -- they're all in this book.
