Popular Toys in the 1950's

posted Aug 25, 2016 by Kathy Pinna
Tiny Tears, Davy Crocket, Mr. Potato Head (with your own real potato!), Chinese Checkers . . . the toys of the 1950's. This video shows all of these and more. Do you remember these toys? Do you still have some of them? If you do, you may have a pile of money in your garage or attic.

Although most people say that "kids used to play with sticks and rocks", toys made specifically for children have been around since ancient times. Dolls have been found from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome and the first known mechanical puzzle is from 3rd century BC Greece. We have always loved toys!
