What huge boxes of chocolate!
Yes, and they didn’t cost much either.
These are brilliant Sandra, just love ’em..
Me too, Gerry.
I’d like to order a 1 Candyhouse kit and 3 View Masters please. (1962 – were they really around that long ago?)
These images bring back memories – wonderful. Life was so much simpler and easier then, but I suppose it is when you’re seven years old.
Yes, life was simpler and easier for sure. And, yes, I remember view masters as far back as the 1950’s.
I don’t think they reached Britain until the mid-late 60s, but I could be mistaken. Where I live was a rural backwater then. Maybe they just didn’t reach the South-West of England. I never had one, but I bought one for my daughter in about 1982, and they were around for a while after that, so they had a good run – until technology overtook them.
What happened to magic? I was thrilled and impressed by simple things like magic painting books (where you paint water onto the page and you get some sort of an insipid picture with about 3or 4 blurred colours) – now children shrug their shoulders and even take computers for granted.
Bring back the simple toys that don’t talk!
