Vintage Baby.

Boy, did this bring back some memories.

The Fisher Price Radio, found in a baggie in the Village Thrift on Clark during their half-price sale yesterday. I couldn’t tell if it worked or not but for 95 cents, who is not going to take a chance on it? And it works! Plays Happy Birthday as prettily as you would like to hear.

Look at the pretty graphics on the back. It’s stamped 1970, so it’s over 40 years old. I had to sound like a 90-year-old curmudgeon, but they just don’t make toys like they used to, do they?

I’m torn between letting the babies play with it or keeping it for display purposes — I have a bad feeling my kids can break something in five minutes that was otherwise perfect for 40 years.

Into Vintage Just stumbled across your blog via my favorite waste of time, pinterest, and now I see I might as well abandon all pretense of work today as I must immediately read through all of your old posts.
