Overview

Filled with a host of curious facts and little-known anecdotes about the creation and evolution of over forty timeless toys and games, Kid Stuff is a celebration of classic playthings. Showcasing dozens of childhood favorites that are still popular today, this volume takes readers back to a carefree time when whoopee cushions and sneezing powder were the funniest jokes in the world, the Magic '8' Ball and Etch A Sketch were mysterious, and freedom was the open sidewalk and a candy apple-red Roadmaster tricycle. Generations of kids have been unable to resist the smell of Crayolas, the feel of Play-Doh, the sight of Mr. Potato Head, or the taste of Pez. Pairing colorful new photographs with playful memorabilia, this delightful book makes it clear why these classic toys and games live on - both in our memories and on the shelves.
