Using Collector Websites to Research Vintage Toys ~ Fisher-Price w/Reseller Notes - YOU TUBE VIDEO


This was a fun video to make!
I've been meaning to do it forever.
A lot of people don't know that these collector sites still exist, so
I am going to be working on a page of the ones I use.
Feel free to comment any that you use so I can add them to the list.

Beasties by Wham-O ~ Be A Monster Maker 1960s Creative Toy

I just found this photo in my archives of an amazing toy kit I found years ago.
It was made by Wham-o in the late 60s and is basically an art kit to make fun little monsters.

It includes Pom poms, pipe cleaners, feathers, misc fur, and eyeballs.

When I was running an afterschool program I put out this same assortment of items, 
inspired by this find.  The kids loved it and made these creatures every day, until we rann
out of literally ALL of the supplies and related supplies.  Then they started to use paper
to make them houses and cars and vacation retreats!  It really sparked their imaginations.

Vintage A-Team Coloring & Activity Book

A while back I found this fun and STRANGE coloring and activity book about the A-Team
going on a picnic.  There are 30 pages here, but a few were already removed, so the story
isn't totally fleshed out.  But, you get the gist!  Not really a show meant for kids that
were still coloring, but the 80s did not care if toys were or were not appropriate!
