All I want for Christmas are some Vintage...

Toys! Over the past couple of weeks I've thrifted some really cool vintage toys and books that any boy or girl would love to find under the tree this Christmas. Do you remember playing with any of these toys?

The Fisher Price Chatter Telephone from 1961. Growing up I had this toy and remember it had a yellow pull string so when you pulled it the eyes would blink. 

 Tupperware "Busy Blocks" from 1971. This set contains 26 alphabet hinged blocks and each block comes with a miniature figurine that can be put inside so kids can snap, stack and learn their letters! This set is in amazing condition and surprisingly contains all its pieces. I couldn't resist its $2.50 price tag!

Ahi Ding Dong Express Tin Toy Train from the 1960's made in Japan. Unfortunately its not in working condition but makes for an interesting display piece.

Tupperware O Ball Tuppertoys Shape Sorter with shapes. We also had this classic toy which Tupperware is still making today.
This original Tinkertoy Big Builder System is from the 80s. "Tinkertoys -- the easy building system for little people with big imaginations." 

 A Mattel 1963 Barbie Doll Case Blue Vinyl Storage Closet Wardrobe Trunk.I was/am a huge Barbie fan so I was excited to find this doll case at GW for $1.99.

These 3 vintage Christmas themed Golden Books are so cute! Frosty the Snowman, Santas Toy Shop and Jingle Bells. I'm on the hunt for a copy of Rudolph to add to my holiday collection.
Did you have a favourite Christmas toy growing up?

Heading over to The Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday. 

Wishing Everyone a Merry Thrifty Christmas!  

Until we thrift again...


  1. Barbies and board games were probably my favourites, and I'm still loving board games!

    I had Tinkertoys and my kids had the Tupperware ball, I still have the ball.

  2. Oh, you hit the vintage toy jackpot! Love them all but, I WANT the Barbie wardrobe case! LOL Thank you for sharing at TTF. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
