First up, an oldie but goodie, by special request---and a very clever way to display one's vintage and new putz houses. From the talented Scotty, his 2011 Christmas putz tree.
It's followed by a 1948 for MOBO ACTION toys. These toys would never pass muster today in the safety department; I mean just look at that Mobo Merry-Go-Round and Mobo Rocker Swing--and DANGEROUS by today's safety standards. Just about the only toy that might be acceptable is the Mobo Bronco.
Mobo appears to have been a British company; you can see another example of a Mobo horse here.
And finally one of our FAVE vintage 1960's MAN FROM UNCLE toys--Illya KuryakIn gun set featured in the 2014 SeriousToyz auction.
Again click on the photos and enjoy.
A friend is working on a July 4th putz and was looking for very small Uncle Sam figures—here's two from an ETSY shop

Alcohols and acrylics don’t mix—or do they? We’ve been experimenting with painting techniques on cardboard—to eventually be cut up and used for other projects—(like putz houses of course)—you may find this video of interest; unlike the instructor in the video, we would not go with another layer of paint—just a single layer of paint and then the alcohol drip; see the video here
