One toy that stands out? Viewmasters. I loved those things. It was so neat-o to see for the first time Charlie Brown done in 3-D. Same for all the rest of the cartoons. Do you know that was 40 years before Computer animation could do the same thing? Now all the toons- Thomas the Train,Toy Story, and the like look like Viewmasters.
I would look at those things and in the background cartoon 3-D homes wonder who lived in there? It had doors,windows,somebody must live there. I could really get into it.
Its a wonder they never put 2 and 2 together to make Viewmaster movies back then.
