Oh great captures!

We had a similar toy but none of the blocks were painted. The boys liked chewing on the blocks rather than make the toy work.

I wish I had kept our wooden train like that ... I have such happy memories ... hopefully another mom somewhere is building on them with the same train somewhere ....

My son has something very simular. It good to know classic toys never die. Wood toys last some much longer than the plastic junk of today.

Great memory

Great shots! I can almost hear a little guy's laughter and "chug-chug" as he makes those toys come alive!

Sue said...

I may have to head up to the attic and see if any of my son's wooden toys are interested in a photoshoot. :)

Your post is filled with nostalgia in a nice way.
