What sets this ode to toys past apart from other collections is that creator Richard Miller supplies pictures ”and ”tells you how to play with such defunct diversions as King Zor and Uncle Fester’s Mystery Light Bulb, which those born after ‘67 probably don’t remember. Here, you’ll also learn that the object of Odd Ogg was to roll a ball near enough to a half turtle/half frog’s mouth so that it hopped toward – instead of away from – you. There are more complete ’60s-era toy-collector sites, like Erick Erickson’s Marvin Glass page (which you’ll find a link to from this site), but few are as playfully detailed as this one.
