Maybe he's avoiding. He posted late last night on the scooter question.
StompersI was a bit old for them, but still bought a few and loved'em all the same.
Pretty much like my old water rocket, except I think mine was pretty much all clear red.
I had one of those water rockets. Did the este rockets too. Fun stuff. I also had a camera rocket.I still have a bunch of the rocket stuff, but no water ones.I've played many games of pool using one of those tiny hotwheel sized remote control cars.. They slowly get the cue ball moving, but they can, and it's actually quite fun. Never had any remote control as a kid, but always wanted one
It's small. I suggest the kitchen table.
Here's the one I mainly grew up with, and then as my younger brothers got more into this type of thing, we got the Girders & Panels, like the last photo below.Super City... (took me forever to find'em on line)Oh, and those old "Magic Mirror" sand art oval window things are worth a bunch now! My Grandma had 2... the original, and one that glowed in the dark. I think my aunt
Yep... real sharp edged? Cool bubble windows for some, and all the flat colored plexiglass pieces too... I wonder whatever happened to ours, or what those ones were actually called.
yes, and I'd love some growing rocks!
Yep.. the playing card sized panels were more 70's.
I was just looking at viewmasters on ebay last night. The "talking" viewmaster. hahahaa funny stuff. I have some older ones. I almost bid on a Land of the Lost meets the Abominable Snowman reels. I still want to.
Yep... had them... with the cool bubble windows and other colored windows and cool pressed tiles. If it's what I'm thinking... there were the ones with thin printed "building" prints, with black girders and stuff... asbestos bases, it seems... and then an older version that were white square and rectangle, and triangle frames. Those were the ones with the way cool clear colored
Yep... very popular for FP collectors. I never liked them much, even as a kid, so I never got into them. They're plentiful. They also made re-makes of those just recently.I'm still needing a few of the old Fisher Price and Disney Action Films little movie cartridges. I'm also going to re-do some of those with other super 8's.. Like Jetsons, Aristocats, Woody Woodpecker, etc. R
I've never not had a record player; well, since I was about 4, and had my own little plastic portable. Loved that little thing to death!
Yep... Certain ones can bring in top dollar, but they aren't too awfully bad for the most part.. yet. I been watching Leonard Nimoy records go up steadily though, and I been wanting to collect those for about 20 years now. Sadly, I just got my ebay account up and going last year.I wouldn't mind one of those original picture-albums of Saturnalia.
Tomy wind-up robots.. The "Rascal Robots." 5 years ago or so, I could buy them all day long for a few dollars each. Now, they're fetching 60-70 dollars each! It's insane. I do have a couple. I gave one away a few years ago as a birthday present. Wish I woulda bought up a bunch of'em when they were still cheap.Shark Shark game for the ol' Intellivision. Same thing, alm
I'd like to try dying a couple of the off-white Pop goes the Weasel ones, and making them a chocolatey brown, if possible. I am pretty sure RIT dye will work, but I may have to stir it frequently as to not settle and make it look horrible. A brown radio front with maybe light blue music notes and border.. or maybe even gold or white on those..
:) I love a good coral.These boxes vary quite a bit, depending how much sunlight they've seen. The Yankee Doodle is originally kind of a flourescent orange-red, like a couple others. Don't know why they made so many types in that color.
That's a "Do Re Mi" which I have 4 or 5 of already. And- if the title isn't showing in the photo, it means the movement is stuck or ruined. I can usually remedy them, but if it's real bad it isn't worth the hassle, as most of these original tunes are easy to replace with new movements of the same song.
I need to do better dial art. You can only see the title here, which is about the worst part of it. hahaa I did it, just so I could put this one together today, and learn. This is just one of four backs I have printed so far.
Yep... like the telephone that everyone's seen.The Nifty Station Wagon can bring over $1000.Been sick in bed almost all day today. No energy. I want to get some dial art done! Then I could get a few of these re-done. I'm running low on paintings to sell though, so I really should be doing more of those... This is the second time I've had this in 2 weeks! Last time it took 4 or 5 day
hahaha, ok.. I have one more elf video. I like this one better.
hahhaa, Beer bottles hit that video game top lots harder than that hammer did. It's pretty thick glass. I wasn't actually tapping on the glass itself. It's my Scramble game, which I also bought a Super Cobra board that I can change out when I want.To change the music, I have to open them, and grind out 2 rivets that hold the old movement in to place. I can use those same holes to pu
They just wind up in front, and as it winds itself back down, the dial turns to view little works of simple art. They have parts inside the dial that only allow 2 or 3 full turns, so it "never over-winds." Many of these now play real slow or not at all, but I can remedy that. When they wind down completely, the dial should stop with the song title at the top.I don't collect much Fis
Yes, but I bet the shipping was like $18... hahahaaand I usually only see "Pop Goes The Weasels" go for that low. They are a slight off white, kind of almond color, with bright red music notes and border.Now if it were a "My Name is Micheal," which is orange, I'd be sad. Mulberry Bush is a kind of yellow-orange, which I do need still. I also like the "Whistle a Happy
I've never collected anything that I intend on just selling again. I collect them because I like them. I grew up with'em as a kid. The cheaper ones, I decided to buy for my art projects, which I expect to turn out great. I wouldn't try to make money off them, but if that happened, I'd do more of them. I have many to mess with now, and can't wait to see some done. I will of
I bought all the 99 cent ones up already.. hahaa The collection is something I've wanted to do for a long time, but then in doing it, I got more ideas.I'll have my prints made for new backs so I can make more than one of each. I printed some already, but they were slightly too small. I've re-sized since then, and have 4 ready to print. I now have to work on art for the dials, which
You are correct. Like I said though; most of these will be art projects, and mostly given away as gifts. So far I have 4 different backs made up for re-doing the poor ones. I also have music box movements to change. I already changed one, to see how easy it is, and it is rather easy. I only have 14 for an "originals" display so far.Looking for low-cost movements that seem to be hard to f
I'm collecting nice ones for display, and the rest for replacing the music and re-doing the artwork on.For my collection; I still need Humpty Dumpty, Alle Meine Lentchen, Sing a Song of Six Pence, and Mulberry Bush. I would still like a better My Name is Michael, and a Raindrops are Falling on My Head, and the later version Twinkle Star.
It's actually a scooter. Similar, and almost the same as the Puch Cheetah, Mr Cheetahchrome. hahaa ;)I'm thinking the bike wandered off by itself, and she finally found it after all these years. One simple way of preventing that is to tie down the horn button at night.
