COLLECTION #260: Vintage Fisher-Price Toys

I've shared some of my F-P toys in past posts, but I haven't posted all of my vintage ones. Ok, there aren't that many, but they are definitely fun and colorful, and worth looking at! (You can see my other F-P toys here and here.)

My oldest toy is from the 1930s, the Dizzy Donkey Pop-up toy. Simple premise: pull the string ring, donkey moves around on the little paddle.

The rest of my collection are from the 1950s and 1960s.  None of these were my own toys as a child, they are playthings that I've acquired through the years. They are all in well-worn, and well-loved condition, and are by no means valuable or rare. Just fun!  Enjoy!

You and my MIL collect a lot of the same kind of stuff. She turned the office in her house into a Fisher Price room recently.
