Where did Legos come from, The Lego Group, a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark. Legos has come a long way. I had the basic Lego set, and my kids today play with that basic set too.

When was Legos first star, they began making inter locking blocks in 1949

Legos was a great toy, because it improved your mind every time you built something with it.

 

Batman, was an unexpected, and hugely popular campy TV show, that ran from 1966-1968 for a total of 120 episodes, with many guess villains from old Hollywood, from Cesar Romero,Van Johnson, Otto Preminger, Burgess Meredith, and many more over its short run.  There was a lot of toys related to the show,and the Batman Utility belt was a popular toy. I probably had this, but have no memory of it. We are going back about 47 years.

Batman Starred Adam West, and Bert Ward

the game of life created in 1860

The Game Of Life, was created in 1860 hard to believe, but the modern version was created a 100 years later in 1960 by Milton Bradley; We had life, my brother, and I played the game in the mid 70’s; after playing Monopoly for years. Life was different. You had to spin a wheel, and there was no dice. The denominations of money are much larger, from $5000 to $50,000;

Life was ok, but confusing at times, with the whole promissory note thing,and stock certificates. I guess they are used in real life, but didn’t really understand it as a kid. Lot’s of nostalgia anyway great memories.

 

The Game Of Life had Art Linkletter as it’s spokesman
