Christopher Byrne’s New Book
What was your favorite childhood toy?
Do you have fond memories of fighting unseen enemies with your G.I. Joe action figures, demolishing fleets of vehicles with your Tonka Toy Trucks, or Karate-chopping imaginary street thugs with your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
What about carefree summer afternoons counting ticks on your Skip-It, scooting around the neighborhood on your Big Wheel, or soaring down your backyard Slip ’n Slide?
Charming, playful, and full of photos of vintage toys, Toy Time! is an exploration and celebration of the toys that roused our imaginations, shaped our memories, and touched our lives.
Did You Know: the modern day Frisbee was inspired by a bunch of students who made a game out of tossing empty pie plates to avoid studying? The pies came from the Frisbie Baking Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
