There's something about the smell and the feel of wood and metal toys. Toys that don't come with elaborate back stories; ones that are ripe for a child's imagination to take flight. Toys that aren't labeled "For Boys" or "For Girls." As we work on Gates' nursery, I find myself thinking about the things I grew up with: Fisher Price, Playskool, Lincoln Logs, Tonka, and TupperToys.
|The Finds (from left to right): Tonka Fire Truck $17.99 from The Vintage Road 2 Retro; Tuppertoys $10 from RetroClassics; Lincoln Logs: Explorer Set $39.95 from Westward Gifts; Fisher Price A-Frame $140 from Toys of the Past.|
