52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Toys
First thing which comes to mind would be my Bike! Nothing fancy, one which you peddle forward to go and start to peddle backwards to stop, has one of those banana seats so your best "bud" could hop on , and maybe another would ride the handle bars~you had to be one good balance, and fearless. ( which alot of us were between 8 and 10 years old.
Then there were the skates...again, nothing fancy, had the key you wore around your neck on a string. Remember those two piece medal skates which with the key you could tighten to our shoes. Of course I had a pair of the boot lace up skates with the (again) medal wheels, seem to help you go faster....living in So. Calif, during the Santa Ana winds , wearing a light jacket....using it as a sail..."I'm flying...."
When stuck indoors, like so many girls ~I had Barbie, her honey Ken, her best friend Midge, a little sis and younger cousin. Now mind you, didn't have all the fancy houses, cars, shops , etc...a simple shoe box would open the imagination .
These are the main toys that come to mind.
