Tinkertoys. My kids spent many hours constructing things with these wooden sticks and wheels. Creative entertainment
I remember Bob's Big Boy in the San Fernando Valley.There were three we would go to on Wednesday Cruise Night in the mid 60's. Canoga Park Bob's, then cruse Van Nuys Blvd. to Van Nuys Bob's, then back to Balboa Bob's on Balboa Blvd. to hang out on the grass in front until you got a table. Loved their Bob's Big Boy Hamburger, French fries dipped in their Roquefort Dressing and a Coke.
Crayola Crayons - remember "Prussian blue" and "spring green"? Ahhh...the 64 box. I remember opening it and marveling at all the colors. The eager expectation of using that wonderful sharpener. Oh, and the smell... there was nothing like it. Even now, when I open a new box of crayons the happy memories just flood back and I smile.
