A Pictorial Price Guide. by William R. Bruegman

A Pictorial Price Guide. Published April 1992 by Toy Scouts, In. .Creating, manufacturing and marketing toys is far from a laugh-a-minute fling.

The inside is chock full not only of pictures of 'sixties era toys but also stories. One of the best is about the guy at Ideal who invented Mr. Machine (recently reproduced by Poof Toys). There's also great info about how Mattell came up with so many ingenious toys.

So many books offer what amounts to lackluster, weak sauce rehashing of the essence of what Ernest Norling has so skillfully laid down. The old timers, Andrew Loomis, George Bridgeman, Robert Oliver deliver this information with illustrious clarity

So many books offer what amounts to lackluster, weak sauce rehashing of the essence of what Ernest Norling has so skillfully laid down. The old timers, Andrew Loomis, George Bridgeman, Robert Oliver deliver this information with illustrious clarity. These men hit the point, everyone else is reframing the same topic, not really adding much in terms of content or style.

Reviews about Toys of the Sixties: A Pictorial Price Guide (7):
Mullador
"Toys of the Sixties" is primarily a collector's tool, but in being so has a considerable listing of toys manufactured from the late 50's through 1970 or so. Without a doubt, if you grew up in this time, some of your toys will be listed here- and some toys you wanted but never received. All this said, even though my copy says "4th Edition" and the copyright is 1996, what prose there is, and the ads for additional material seem out of the 1980's. I couldn't find websites or email addresses for any of these catalogs, and no specified method of payment either. I would be cautious about using this book for collecting given the fact it's almost 10 years old, but a lot of memories will come back while reading it.

This book is like an oversized, jam-packed version of the quarterly catalog Bill Bruegman put out for Toy Scouts, his retro-nostalgia toy hunting business. It's an oversized, black and white paperback with a full color cover showing lots of great toys. The inside is chock full not only of pictures of 'sixties era toys but also stories. One of the best is about the guy at Ideal who invented Mr. Machine (recently reproduced by Poof Toys). There's also great info about how Mattell came up with so many ingenious toys.

Many of the toys of this era would be outlawed today for insurance reasons. Companies like Tycho bought the molds and brought a lot of them back, sometimes in revised, safer versions. Due to books like this, some toys like Rock 'Em Sock "Em robots have made a comeback. Twenty bones might seem high for this book, but in my view it's a bargain, with hundreds of pictures to pore over, not to mention sprinklings of trivia and Bill's industry anecdotes. Not only that, but this book alerted me to a toy I never knew existed that I stumbled on at a thrift shop. Which is to say, it's a great place to start scouting.

Love this book. It has been a great help to my business (timewarptoys.com), and for my personal collecting. I wish he would do another! I highly recommend it for any child of the sixties or anyone that loves toys!
