Toy Shopping



Today's picture shows a family looking at tows in a window. I love the old style Bicycles, and the simpler type toys they are selling. I can remember growing up hardware stores would have toy sections with this type of bicycle and these types of toys.

  1. Window shopping was fun, but so was the 88 cents toy page in the Sears catalog.

  2. WOW, I can't believe that they would sell velocipedes and bicycles at the same time.
    I would have thought the velocipedes would have been obsolete by then.
    But then they are both human powered vehicles.

  3. Another new word for me...Velocipedes. Had to Google that one :) Those bicycle designs are very interesting. It looks like there are headlights mounted on them. I didn't know they had headlights for bikes that long ago.

    ...and what's up with that plush doll just to the right of that woman's shoulder? It looks very angry!

  4. I never like those creepy monkies on the left side of the window.

  5. Must be about the time the "Wizard of Oz" came out. Those flying monkeys seemed popular then. I always liked the larger monkeys like the "Planet of the Apes" monkeys. Those are some mean monkeys!

  6. Man, I agree with Maybelline about the creepy monkey. Those things give me the willies.

  8. Im in my late 30s but I remember playing with a monkey that belong to my great grandmother. It seems like the monkey clapped its hands together holding something. Seeing the face of the monkey in the window brought back that memory. I must have been under 5 years old at that time.
