As always, so much fun stuff to share--click on the photos and links...

First up from Croton's own Serioustoyz.com--the "Lost In Space Motorized Robot" #760, 1966, by Remco, 14" plastic b/o robot w/ blinking lights; arms move via handles on back; scarce black & red variation. It's followed by one of our favorite putz houses from Howard Lamey--by special request AGAIN!---and then from 1971 and Marx, an oldie but goodie, the WHISTLING SPOOKY TREE!   And finally with Easter around the corner, the annual offering of the CHICK SHACK PUTZ PATTERN generously provided by Howard Lamey! Again, click on the photos and enjoy.

And from Toys and Stuff--a fab J Chien Church bank - J. Chein & Company was a toy company founded in 1903 by Julius Chein in 1903 in a loft in New York City. Their first toys were premiums made for Cracker Jack and even through a series of ups and downs, managed to stay in businesss as a toy making company until 1979 when toy making ceased entirely.  Today, after decades of changing hands, the corporate heir to the rights is the U.S. Can Company who continues to make stamped metal products.
