Indentifying Playful Funky Junk: Vintage Fisher-Price Wooden Toys
By: A Cat Eye Girl  -  5/19/2011


funky junk, antiques, primitives, seattle, yakima, tri-cities, spokane, portlandThe most comprehensive source of information about old Fisher-Price toys we have found is at ThisOldToy.com

What we love about this site is its simplicity and while at first you wonder why the toys are organized the way they are . . . after you dig around it makes perfect sense how and why they organized them as they did.

Each toy profiled in the site comes with a description, picture, date of manufacture, and a Fisher-Price #.

While some might view our inclusion of vintage Fisher-Price toys under the "Funky Junk" moniker as a bit of a stretch, we like to think of funky junk as playful and whimsical.  

Are old toys actually funky junk?  We think so, do you?

Is there a better way to include whimsical play into our homes and lives with something other than with an old Fisher Price pull toy with peeling paint and the indisputable charm of their 1950s graphics?  Share here!
