My Favorite Christmas Toy (Plus Fishing Tackle)

My Favorite Christmas Toy (Plus Fishing Tackle)

Although Christmas was technically yesterday, we are all in the Christmas spirit still. So today I'm going to give you a link to a whole bunch of great Christmas catalogs from the 1940s-1980s. Some of these catalogs have fishing tackle, like the followings ones:

1942 Spiegel Christmas Catalog

1945 Sears Toy Fishing Set

1955 Spiegel Bache Brown

My favorite toy as a kid was the Vertibird Rescue Ship. I couldn't find a commercial for it, but here's a picture:

Sooooo... did you find your favorite toy in these catalogs?
