Baby Boomer Toys



The book 100 BEST BABY BOOMER TOYS by Mark Rich , published in 2000, offers just exactly that…or at least the author’s opinion of same. Like most books of this type, the fun is in sitting around with your spouse or your friends and saying, "Hey, I had THAT!" In this case, I had GI JOE, MISTER POTATO HEAD, Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, Kenner’s Give-A-Show projector, spoonmen and more. Because I was a boy, though, I never did get that Easy-Bake Oven I wanted. Sigh. Sexism sucks. Here are a few pics from the book of other cool toys I didn’t have! (Well, I DID have a dozen variations on that magnetic drwing set. I loved those things!)
