3 NEW TOYS ADDED THAT BEGIN WITH THE LETTERS "J" , "P" & "T" ON 08/13/16

I have very fond memories of the toys & games I owned, or played with when I was a child. These memories are not limited to toys I owned personally, but also may include some that belonged to family members or friends. Whether it be a toy that I could hardly wait to play with at a friends house after school, or a game with family members on a weekend evening, they were all fun, & put a smile on our faces. Having been born in 1961, the toys/games featured here are only those from that era, & one's only that I remember enjoying playing with. Although my family was far from what would be considered rich, my memories of the amount of toys my siblings & I owned was incredible. Like most kids, we would get toys for our birthdays & sometimes even just for being good! Of course the mother-lode came in December, & the amount of gifts under the tree on Christmas morning was unbelievable. We couldn't wait to get up very early Christmas morning to see what toys that we had wished for, & had seen on TV or in the department store wish books, that we would hopefully receive. We'd take turns opening our gifts, all wrapped in green, white & red paper  & we'd spend the entire morning playing with our new treasures. Although the toys I owned & played with are long gone, the memories live on & below, listed alphabetically for your convenience, you will find images of these toys/games that hold a special place in my heart. I hope you enjoy seeing them & that these images of mainly boys toys, from the 1960's & 1970's will jog your memory & bring you back to a time when just playing with, or owning one of these toys/games made you as happy as they did me. Be sure to check back often, as new toys/games are added as I remember more.
