Tinker Toys

Tinker Toys at Feeling Retro
  • Jack Meili

    I received a set (larger, I think) for Christmas when I was about 8? (1942). Had lots of fun with them. Had a Lincoln Log Cabin set for another Christmas present and an Erector Set for yet another. They knew how to keep me out of mischief. Perhaps why I became an engineer.

  • Masha Rosenthal

    We had these too. Years later there were pieces all over our backyard!

  • Tom R. Chambers

    I played with my "Tinkertoys" a great deal.

  • Lee Potts

    I boughht these for my grandchildren! It was the only thing I had for them that entertained ALL of them at the same time!. (There was a nine year age difference from oldest to youngest.)

  • Dorene Rusho

    I remember my brother had these. He played with them all the time.

Played these with my grandmother! Chinese Checkers in a Tin with Regular Checkers on the other side and marbles and red/black checkers inside

Candy stripers!

  • Deborah Bishop

    This was a favorite thing of mine to do!!!

  • Judy McKeown

    I remember my daughter did this :-)

  • Patricia

    Hi Judy, I didn't become a nurse, but always admire those who did, and I do have friends who are retired nurses, too! One is a woman who is retired and one is a man who is still working!

  • Sheryl Martin

    Was candystriper at Crowley Hospital in Louisiana in the 60's. I did not become a nurse either and regreted that but was bigger deal then and I got married. lol

  • Patricia

    Yes, Cheryl, we all followed our dreams. I know I didn't have the constitution for being a nurse. I married young, also and had three children and now 5 grandchildren ! I'm happy for my choice!

Holiday Decorations | Classic Christmas Ornaments
  • Shirley Cooper

    I used these and other choir member candles, candle trees and lamp posts to make a scene using snow made from Ivory flakes. Can't find those anymore. My son, 54, remembers this and often asks me to do it again!

  • Charlene Kowalski

    Still have my mothers too! There is a picture of me playing with them at the age of two.

  • Shirley Cooper

    Nice to know that many folks still cling to some of the "older" ways of decorating!

  • Peggy Schneider Saez

    I still have these choir boys...they were my moms they are out every Christmas with the angels

  • Carolyn Eisenman

    Remember these. Wish I still had the ones my mother had.

This used to be the only way to get the window down in your car!

  • Carolyn Powell

    you can still buy cars with crank windows because my grandson has one. The basic of the basic and his is a 2008 or 9.

  • Amy Feltz

    Only way to roll them down in those days...frightening!

  • Josephine Thompson

    gosh i remember when....

  • Velda Crotty

    I have a 64 Mustang convertible. My 7 year old granddaughter loves to put the top down and go cruising. She couldn't figure out how to get the window down. I told her to roll it down. She looked at me with a blank look. I showed her how and she was thrilled. She sat there and rolled it up and down. It was like a new toy to her.
