Toy books were illustrated children's books that became popular in England's Victorian era. The earliest toy books were typically paperbound, with six illustrated pages and sold for sixpence.

In the mid-19th century picture books began to be made for children, with illustrations dominating the text rather than supplementing the text.

Written by Bill Bruegman, The Aurora History and Price Guide is a fun and interesting book covering the model kits that had an indelible effect on pop culture. I first discovered Aurora model kits in the 1970s when I saw the classic ones my brother had built. The aged kits rested in the basement for over a decade and aged fairly well. Over the years, I would see Aurora dealers selling the rare original kits at toy and comic book shows. The toys of the 1960s really do reveal a lot about the culture of those who were still very young while America was going through an upheaval. The tale of Aurora's early history is also inspiring.

Over 1,000 vintage collectible 1960's toys are pictured, described, and valued in this 200-page all-sixties price guide. History, trivia, and anecdotes about the items are found throughout. Toys of the Sixties also includes an overview of the toy business in that most creative era, a profile of the toys and the toy companies that still survive today, and an informative and entertaining interview with a former Mattel executive who was instrumental in bringing many of America's favorite toys to the marketplace.

"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!
