Toys for Tots

Received another quirky card from Derrick D in Sacramento. Yes I remember my brother cutting his finger on a sharp metal toy. They didn't consider child safety in the same way back then.  In fact, I used to buy syringes and poison each summer to kill and display butterflies. These were also in the toy section, along with the wooden stretcher bars for properly stretching out the wings. Japanese children always had insect collecting as part of their summer "homework."
