Really enjoyed your site!! That's thing about these great toys; most ran on some form of using your own imagination. Toys for years now have to 'do something' or they are rejected. I recieved so many of the hot toys at Christmas and on my birthday back in the 60's. Looking at the old pics we have of the Xmas tree with all those BRAND NEW now 'vintage' toy boxes under the tree still can make me drool. You have agreat site and wonderful place for those of us who HAD the toys to reminisce, and those who did not to envy us what we had. (If they have the sense enough to begin to grasp what they never had, that is) Stick that in your I-Phone 28G or whatever it is that grips the kids of today.

The Mattel Power Shop was one of my most cherished Christmas gifts. It had to be '65 because I had a preschool melt down since it was NOT a gift in '64. That toy was in my toy box for many years. Too sad that the public would have a fit if it were on the market in its original form today. Thank heavens that stupidity gleans the not-ready-for-power-tools from the gene pool. I survived and learned from this toy as well as the vintage creepy crawlers bug maker. "...let's MAKE something instead of breaking things"! Toys were great then!

My brother and I also had this game when we were children (I'm 57 now). We played for hours and hours, but I have never met anyone who has ever heard of the game. I wish they would bring it back. I'd love for my grandaughter to be able to play it.

I got an electric set for xmas about 1959 I loved it! did all the projects. that was the best toy I ever got. the little car was a block of wood with a metal braket to hold the motor. got the master set the next year. I still have a cigar box full of small motors. I always took all of my toys apart to see the motor. I'M 65 now retired. was a small engine mechanic 39 years my job was my hobbie, never "worked" a day in my life. the last 15 years fixed only 2cycle equipment I fix any chain saw, even in the dark. thank you for showing your electric sets would love to have that stack of them above your computer.

We were cleaning out our kids toy bins when we came across the Questionaire! My brother and sisters had so much fun when we played it! We are definitely keeping it. My husband needs to fix the ends of the wires, that's it!

I had one from 64. Loved it. I think they gave it to goodwill. I feel your pain. Now I wish so bad I could find one for my grandson.
