There are few places that showcase really awesome vintage toys around the West Valley. Or so I thought. Along with Bears and More in DT Glendale, there are not too many places I could rattle off that have a great seleection of quality toys, until I stumbled into the toy section at Target. yes TARGET. I strolled around the corner and got the surprise of my life when I saw this blast from my very own past: I had a little “moment” right there on the floor of Target. Good thing it was in the middle of a weekday, there was barely anyone there. I could have scared quite a few children hugging on to this toy. There was also the ubiquitous Slinky and the incresingly popular twee Sock Monkey, but they also had this cool “Hall of Fame” toy pack:
I want it just for that amazing Crayola tin.
They also had the tin Bouncy Bee, Lincoln Logs,
and even little wooden whistles!
I can’t wait until my friends’ kids are old enough that I can show them the wonders of these classics! Maybe I won’t wait ’til then to buy them!
