45’s! I remember many a summer day spent with girlfriends creating dance routines to different music played on an old 45 record player.
These plastic widgets were put in the center of a 45 record in order to play it on a traditional record player.
My favorites were Tweekbury gum and Razzle Dazzle bubble gum! YUM!
And who didn’t want to find candy cigarettes in your Christmas stocking and a set of Tinker Toys under the tree!
Remember telephone numbers that began with a word rather than a number? Kingswood 5-5252 abbreviated to KI 5 – 5252. I remember the first time my son saw a telephone like this one. He looked at it and asked, “How do you call someone? There are no buttons to push!” He had the hardest time using the dial!
Metal ice trays with a lever to release the ice.
Gum wrapper chains. Weren’t you supposed to make them the height of your boyfriend and if you did then he was the one you were going to marry?
And my MOST FAVORITE of all! Topo Gigio!!!!! The little Italian mouse who was on the Ed Sullivan Show. View an excerpt here. And to my everlasting joy I have discovered he is still around!!! Oh my! And Christmas is coming!!
I love Topo Gigio!
