Baby Boomer Fun: Christmas Toys-1962

Thursday is baby boomer fun day here...scroll down or peruse the archives for real estate items.

Toy commercials are always an interesting window to the past. Below is a 1 min ad for Lionel Trains, Christmas 1962. Recall that this was the age of nuclear angst, and that the Cuban Missile crisis had just passed the previous October.

Watch as we are told how it is equipped with an IRBM missle, "so you can blow your target up again and again". It is prescient, though probably not intentionally so, when it proclaims that Lionel's trains will increase in value over time. Check these 2007 prices out for vintage Lionel items.

ENJOY ! ! Minute
