Thank you for visiting my Toybox and reminiscing with me. I would love it if
you would add your own toy story to this
guestbook I am keeping! Tell me about that special toy from your youth or
just tell me how you liked the site. And note that many people find the site
through the Vertibird page (the coolest
toy ever made). If an entry is talking about some cool toy and the author
doesn't mention which one, it is most likely the Vertibird. Cheers, Sam.
I an having a garage sale and came across my Booby trap game from Guild Toys. Trying to find out how much it is worth. Don't have box. Enjoyed this website very much. Keep it up!

All those Vertibirds and clones are really clones of the Nulli Secundus helicopter dating back to about 1950. They did an aircraft version too. We had one at the charity shop where I work, and we sold it on eBay. Very solid box, colourful label, all metal product, sheet and cast aluminium. I have pictures but there doesn't seem any way for me to put them here.

I was very interested by the vacuum forming machines. I've never seen any such thing in the UK. I've made lots of vac forming mould but always had to rely on someone else to do the forming, though my brother did make his own.

Enjoy the dedication you give to the site and the love for all the toys. I collect vintage toy advertisements from the (mostly) 70s and 80s period, so I was drawn to some of the cool items you have from these two decades of great toymaking, eg: Ricochet Racers :-) Thanks and please check out my toy ads site hen you get chance.

Do you remember a toy similar to the spirograph but in my memory it was metal, not plastic. We put a pen in the end of a part shaped like a compass which had it's spreaded ends set in pegs on the round part. Our fingertips weighted that drawing arm (compass) & as we turned the wheel, the pen moved drawing these same spiro-designs.

I had a Skittle Bowl in the late '60's. I am currently a Givil Designer and CAD Tech, and woodworker. I am drawing up a plan to build my own new game. Loved it as a kid. Any dimensions - game bosrd, etc. Would be most helpful. Also had a vertibird. Miss those days!
