Table of Contents

The toys of the 1950s and 1960s are currently among the most sought after collectibles, and some of the most popular examples are covered in this book.

Nearly 500 beautiful color photos of over 780 toys and collectibles, and a helpful price guide make this a necessary reference for new and advanced collectors and toy dealers everywhere. Baby Boomer Toys and Collectibles covers a broad range of favorites from robots and space toys to race cars, Hanna-Barbera toys, and Beatles collectibles.

Among them are The Official Lost in Space Robot, a hopping Fred Flintstone, and a rare bottle of "With the Beatles" perfume. Many pieces are shown with their original boxes as well.

Some of children's lasting impressions are made while playing with favorite toys, and by simply looking at those toys the good feelings return like magic.

Children from the baby boom of the 1950s and 1960s will feel they have rediscovered old friends and recaptured wonderful memories of youth with the turn of every page of this book. Parents and grandparents of boomers will enjoy the memories this book evokes as well: that last dash to the store at Christmas for the one toy their child or grandchild had to have to make the day complete or the birthday gift that lit up that special child's face with surprise and delight.
