Tinker Toys The Tinkertoy Construction Set was created in 1914—one year after the A. C. Gilbert Company's Erector Set—by Charles H. Pajeau and Robert Pettit in Evanston, Illinois. Pajeau, a stonemason, designed the toy after seeing children play with pencils and empty spools of thread. He and Pettit set out to market a toy that would allow and inspire children to use their imaginations...

1946 Microwave Oven Ad And this is a cheap one!! Commercial microwaves were another story!! . . . "in 1947, the first commercial microwave oven hit the market. These primitive units where gigantic and enormously expensive, standing 5 1/2 feet tall, weighing over 750 pounds, and costing about $5000 each."

Fresca Fresca is a brand of citrus soft drink made by The Coca-Cola Company. First introduced in the United States in 1963, the drink is now sold throughout the world, although not widely available outside of North America. It is, as well, a distinct rarity in Coke products, in that it does not have a Pepsi equivalent. Since its inception, Fresca has been marketed in the United States as a calorie-free, grapefruit-flavored soft drink, ostensibly catering to discriminating adult tastes.. . and i liked it!!

The Tweel 8 track tapes, vinyl records, analog TV, Windows OS 3.1, 95, or 98, and a host of other items have come and gone in the past, and your car tires could go this way eventually. Michelin is experimenting with The Tweel, an airless tire that could make the inner tube a thing of the past. The pros are that having a flat tire would become a thing of the past, when the tread is worn, it can be replaced, as opposed to discarding whole tires, lessening the environmental impact by reducing the rubber discarded, and the polyurethane spokes can be designed to handle differing road conditions, but it isn't ready for market yet. Driving over 50 mph can result in undesirable vibrations, also the sound is loud to the ears when driven at high speeds. When these new airless tires eventually hit the market, there might be another valuable item though that goes the way of the dinosaur. Apparently spike strips are useless against them. I can't see law enforcement officers being overly enthusiastic about this new technology!

JIMMY JET Probably the earliest flight simulator ever made for kids and one of the greatest toys ever made! Made by the "Deluxe Reading" toy company in the early 1960's, and sold mainly in supermarkets. (You could also get them by mail-order from the old Spiegel catalog and other mail-order firms as well.) You controlled the steering with a yoke as your jet flew over moving terrain, (a rotating scenery cylinder,) controlling your airspeed as you lined up a "target," then fired (actual) rubber-tipped missiles by pulling the two missile-launching levers. Enough dials, levers, chrome and noise to delight any young fighter pilot! It was a blast knocking down my little green army men with the missiles! It used 4 'D' batteries.

Vintage Multi Pistol 09 by Topper Toys 60s The 60's spy craze on TV and in the movies was a natural segway into the toy market. Manufacturers wasted no time putting out a line of toys capitalizing on the success of James Bond, The Man from Uncle, The Avenger's, Secret Agent Man and others. Topper Toys wasted no time either and quickly put out a line of spy toys to compete with the other manufacturers. This is the Multi-Pistol 09. Every Junior Espionage Agent had to have one, including me!

Randix 57 Chevy AM FM Radio Cassette Here is a '57 Chevy AM/FM radio/cassette player from the '80's. The front hood opens to insert the cassette and the rear trunk opens to hold the batteries and AC cord. The headlights are the speakers, the windshield is the carrying handle and the antenna is, well, the antenna. The front driving lights light up when the unit is on. The front license plate says "RANDIX '57 Chevy." It was marketed by the RANDIX Co. but was manufactured in China! (It's probably been giving out melamine rays all these years!) I actually bought this at a Toys "R" Us. For those of you who watch reruns of "Home Improvement," you might have noticed one of these sitting on the shelf of the "Tool Time" set. (One of my favorite shows.)

Did You Ever Have One Pet Rocks were a 1970s fad conceived in Los Gatos, California by an advertising executive, Gary Dahl. The first Pet Rocks were ordinary gray pebbles bought at a builder's supply store and marketed as if they were live pets. The fad lasted only about six months, ending with the Christmas season in December 1975; but in its short run, the Pet Rock made Dahl a millionaire
