CHRISTMAS TOY NOSTALGIA: PLASTICINE ®

I made many a thing out of Plasticine®, or something similar, when I was a child – after softening it up by the heater, because, what we had back then wasn’t all that malleable unless you did. And, back then, I was not aware of how many other uses it had. https://www.thevintagenews.com/2017/03/04/plasticine-is-a-secret-substance-that-has-many-uses-from-childrens-plaything-to-bomb-defuser/

CHRISTMAS TOY NOSTALGIA: TEDDY BEARS

The above photo is of my mother with her teddy bear back in the 1920s. His name was George, and her children all played with him too. By the time he got to the last one (me), he was a little worse for wear, but still loved. https://socialstudiesforkids.com/articles/cultures/teddy_bear_history.htm https://www.nps.gov/thrb/learn/historyculture/storyofteddybear.htm
