Grandfather Clock from Capt. Kangaroo

Grandfather Clock from Captain Kangaroo. Flash from the past. Do you remember this clock on Captain Kangaroo?

Flash cubes ... Mom, "say cheese," - "oh wait, I forgot to turn the flash, say cheese again."

Flashcubes - You slid a lever to spin the flash after EACH picture. 4 flashes on each bulb then that was it, you had to pop in another flash cube. No cube? No flash! I can still remember the smell they made after you flashed one.

Primer. Dick and Jane readers were how children learned to read.

Learned to read from this book. Loved Dick, Jane, Sally, Spot, and Puff. Both our kids learned to read from them too!

Dick and Jane. LOVED those books. That was our first readers in first grade. They were little blue soft bound books. I got Dick and Jane books for my grand kids.
