We think the Japanese made some of the funniest, kitschiest, and cleverest little toys ever in the 1950's and 60's!

Like this one! V.I.P. THE BUSY BOSS! Featured in a previous auction at Croton's own

Made by Craigstan S&E Co., Japan, 8”, tin b/o. Just dial ‘your’ phone, & he answers his & speaks; professionally repaired w/ table lamp & “wires” replaced. It sold for $203.84 at auction.  Click on the photo and check out the latest news from Serious Toyz here

HEY TRAIN LOVERS! Check this out--TRAIN TIME: 1995 Henderson Outdoor Garden Railway - From the forgotten fotos files are some pics from an outdoor railway here in Henderson, Nevada. HOWEVER this layout is no longer there. About a year or so after these were taken back in 1995 the owner of the house had an extensive garage fire and my understanding was that he sold the house and moved. In any case, we haven't been back there to see whether or not the layout still exists. READ MORE HERE

Blumchen has added even more "Old Time Halloween Decorations" to their crop of offerings--5 glorious pages!
