Toy Story

Toys of the 1950’s were
kid powered.
If you didn’t apply
muscle and/or ingenuity,
nothing happened.

Hauling dirt with trucks…
Having a tea party with dolls…
Strapping on the cap guns
to play cowboys and Indians…
Or cruising the streets on our bikes.

Especially in the summer,
everyone was out and about
from dawn to dusk
until the call:
“Time to come in for dinner”
rang throughout the neighborhood.

Being tired and
dirty from head to toe
after a hard day of play
was pretty much the status quo.

There’s something special about
spontaneous play,
powered only by
kids’ imaginations.
