TOYS of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s Exhibit

Heinz History Center- downtown Pittsburgh 

 

A sampling of the exhibit. I went with the Retired Teachers after a luncheon at Lidia’s.

Memories of childhood in America.

 Here are a few-Erector sets and Tinker Toys. Lincoln Logs. Slinky and Etch-a-Sketch, Pac Man and Star Wars. Barbie dolls and GI Joe. Mr. Potato Head and trolls. Spirograph and Cootie.  Howdy Doody, Hopalong Cassidy and Roy Rogers. 

Maybe you’ll recognize one of your toys from your childhood.

  1. Good one, Ruth! For Jonathan’s 39th birthday, I sent him a box of toys and things he loved as a kid. He said it was the best, most thoughtful gift I’ve ever given him! How can I follow that up for his 40th? Anyway, I do remember ALL of those toys!

  3. What an excellent exhibit! We still have my View-master and the spiro-graph. My grown up kids bought a Twister game for their children. Hula hoops have made a comeback!
