“The Big Toy Box At Sears – Boy’s Edition” Christmas Wish Book Catalogs 1951-69 Reprint Compilation

Sears Roebuck and Company/Classic Toy Soldiers Inc.,1997 revised edition. Paperback. Approx. 8-1/2” X 11”. 517 pages. Black and white and color pages.

This is the improved, revised edition of the definitive compilation of Baby Boomer boy toys taken from the Sears Wish Book toy catalogs, 1951-1969. While the original had only black and white pages, this edition includes 172 pages in beautiful color (just like the original catalogs which mixed b&w with color). Each section begins with a copy of the original catalog cover and all pages are numbered with an easy-to-reference table of contents in the front, making it simple to find a particular year. Back cover is the hard-to-find Disneyland play set.

This is not a complete re-print of every Wish Book (that would weight about100 lbs. and include a lot of of boring non-toy items), just the best items that every Boomer boy dreamed of. There are few girls toys and almost NO DOLLS or doll-related items but most every major Baby Boomer boy’s toy that Sears sold is covered here, including Marx play sets, cap guns, Western toys, Roy Rogers, Tom Corbett, space toys, slot cars, model toy trains, character watches, battery-operated toys, wind-ups, action figures, GI Joe, die-cast, games, playsuits, Matt Mason, Lost In Space, Japanese tin, Tonka, Buddy-L, pressed steel, Johnny West, Remco, Ideal, Disney, Eldon, Kenner Girder and Panel sets, pedal cars, model airplanes, Lesney Matchbox, Aurora, Capt. Action, Batman, Superman and much, much more.

A great blast of nostalgia for any Baby Boomer and an invaluable reference (ever try to sell a toy on eBay that you didn’t know the name of?).
