MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

Another one of those great ads from the back pages of a movie magazine, 1960--100 LITTLE DOLLS ALL FOR A DOLLAR! Made of styrene (now there's a word you don't hear of too often any more) and hard synthetic rubber. Yes, we want them all.

So worth looking at again: the coolest Disney blog--all vintage 1928-1945.
