1917 Toy Pages from John M Smyth Catalog

You know I love old toys, but this old?  I don't collect toys quite this old but I can appreciate them and I love to look at toys of any age in old catalogs.  I'm fascinated by what children played with in any era.  The funny thing is that the toys aren't all that different.

Kenner 1977 Baby Heartbeat Dolls & Booklets ~ Toy-Addict

I found the booklet for Baby Heartbeat, for sale, on Instagram. 
 I thought it was so cute and had to have it.  
My booklet is near the end of the video, it's actually the booklet for the 
Baby Heartbeat Care Set.  When I got the booklet, I was very interested in the doll line.
They made a Black and a White version of the doll and you could buy the Care Set Kit separately. 
The dolls were released in 1977 and seem to have been sold until 1978.




            

This is the booklet that actually came with the Care Set






This is the booklet that came with the doll






She cost $10.94 in 1977!


I love that it came with little glasses for you to wear while taking care of your baby.

My sister made this video fixing up the hair on a vintage My Pretty Pony from

Vintage 1984 Barbie Catalog from Finland (In Finnish)


This is one of the catalogs that came out of the largest Barbie museum in Palo Alto, CA.
Many of the Barbie catalogs and books I've posted in the last year or two have come out of that collection.  Each of these books, from outside the US, have dolls and fashions that were not produced here in America.  It is cool to see those items!

Video from the 1982 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade w/Strawberry Shortcake



I love this!  I wish they would have shown better close ups of everyone!
They must have been promoting the Pets on Parade special.
