The Way We Were: Collectible Vintage Toys

August 11th 2011 | Photography

Old styles are constantly making a comeback. Vintage clothes, furniture and pop-art accessories all have a huge market and the common consensus on the net is that “there’s no time like the past”.  Going back in time is not an option, but making the present take the form of the past is. As adults, we are often tempted to look at toys. Whether by plan or by chance, an encounter with a childhood toy strikes a chord with most people. For all of you young-at-heart grown ups, we’ve collected rare and amazing photos of vintage toys, which nowadays are sold as collectibles. Aside from wooden toys, you’ll also be able to find wind-up robots, educational toys and even the old mandatory “Game and Watch”. Enjoy!
