6a0133ec87bd6d970b013486817eb5970c-320wi I am having fun finding these historic toy videos and I hope you are enjoying them as well.  This video, accompanied by a great Benny Goodman soundtrack, contains shots of the Sears Wish Book from the 1940’s.

Check out the toys that can kill you.  There are darts with long sharp points, a bow and arrow set that gives you an option of suction cups or sharp points and a working steam engine, which I am sure in the wrong hands, can blow you to kingdom come.

I also like the fully rigged out Mounties uniform, the amazing looking movie projector, the typewriter and the printing set.

All that plus Monopoly for $1.69 and it’s a fun trip into the past.  Enjoy it.
