hahahaha. I said few would recognize the music since I typically wax poetic about events in the eightes and get that glazed eyeball, totally lost look from all you young folks. I just take it for granted now that a high percentage of readers probably don't get many of my references. But, I am so glad that you too grew up on that crazy box with the clown...

I found that video on Mattel Toys fascinating.  1950 is about right, for only a few years henceforth, a lot of that tin-toy manufacture had been shipped off to Japan.  That's right, the country bombed out not even 10 years prior was well on its way to becoming one of of the world's industrial powerhouses.

You go on to say:

>>> Very few of you will recognize the background music.

C'mon now, you're pulling our leg.  Surely everybody recognizes that tune as "Pop! goes the Weasel".  At least I sure hope everybody recognizes it.  And you didn't even have to grow up on Romper Room to know that either.

My pleasure -- I could have supplied 2-3x the number I included, but these are representative of what I found. You'll love the music, the narration and, of course, the clothes--oh I mean the historic value.
