Nostalgia is a natural side effect of the holidays. Embrace it with Toy Time! by Christopher "The Toy Guy" Byrne, as he remembers the best toys from the 1950s through the 80s, including Magic 8-Balls, LEGO blocks, Crayola crayons, Silly Putty and Easy Bake Ovens, along with some forgotten toys like plastic "clackers."  With rich color photos and retro backdrops, Toy Time! makes reading a whole lot of fun.  You'll be digging through basements and attics for your Hula Hoops and He-Man action figures after flipping through the pages of this well-crafted guide.  Happy Holidays!
