    For many of us Mego Toys were the 'Rosebud' of our childhoods. This book is a wonderful trip down memory lane. It's a beautifully written and wildly entertaining read. Going through this book triggered a flood of memories. For the first time in years, I recalled the small details about playing with my favorite childhood toys. How the decal on Batman's chest would come off, how the utility belts fastened together....It all came back to me. For most of us....this book is the closest we'll come to replicating our old collections. I really love this book.
