To the moon!

No, I have no toys or other goodies relating to "The Honeymooners."

But I do have this nifty little bank once given out by the Hollywood State Bank (whatever that may have been). Simply place a coin on top of the rocket, push a tiny lever, and zoooooom! it flies through a slot into the moon...



I can tell you that tests show it works roughly 48 times out of 50....

There may well be more toy photos soon. I made trips down to the garage for each of the items shown so far. When I brought the little space-age bank up, I simply left it in the large packing box of toys (one of two) it was stored in. As soon as I clean 'em all up, I'll show more.

It's a good distraction for me.

Pretty cool, it would be fun to play with even if it misses occasionally.

When my kids were little they had a bank that did something like that. I barely remember it but wish I'd kept it!

I love old toys. I have none, and they are too expensive to buy now, so I shall just look...

You've got some very unique items in your collection, Scribbs. you need some way to display them...they'd be great conversation pieces. :)

l&s -- display to whom? I just want to show 'em to someone who decides she wants to get down on the floor and play with them...and me....

That bank rocks! I want one on my desk, so I can shoot money into it whenever I'm stressed out. Beats the hell out of watching my face turn purple (although it's a beautiful shade of eggplant).

Sugar -- it's happiest taking pennies and dimes...and you know how far those go these days!

I bet a toy museum or any museum for that matter would LOVE to get their hands on you nifty stuff.

48/50 eh?

:D

Int, honey, I should be in a museum...never mind the toys.

That's where dinosaurs belong, you know....

Those are fun! I think they make some replicas of them now a days.

That kind of bank was the best ever. I remember one with the same mechanical parts that was woodsman firing a musket at a tree or bear or something.

You can wear the toys and walk around town. That would be a good way to display and some cool woman might not be able to resist.
