Sweet Memories

All my elementary school papers were printed on a mimeograph...I can still smell the purple ink :)

remember these! Baby shoes that mommy had to polish white whenever they got scuffed up. The sentimental parents then had them bronzed & displayed proudly/permanently in the living room.

What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs, and makes a slinkity sound? A spring, a spring, a marvellous thing! Everyone knows it’s Slinky. It’s Slinky, it’s Slinky. For fun it’s a wonderful toy. It’s Slinky, it’s Slinky. It’s fun for a girl or a boy. It’s fun for a girl or a boy!”

The Wowee Whistle. These came out around Halloween each year. They were made of wax, similar to the wax candy lips that you can still get. You blew on the whistle until you got tired (a skilled musician could actually produce songs), then you chewed up the wax. The wax was infused with a flavor similar to Beeman's gum, and was quite tasty.
