5.0 out of 5 stars FOR COLLECTORS OR NOSTALGIA BUFFS, December 1, 2004
This review is from: It's a Wonderful Christmas: The Best of the Holidays 1940-1965 (Hardcover)
I have to admit that the content in this book is a bit before my time...yet that doesn't make it any less wonderful to browse through. Open the pages and step back to the simpler times of the 40's and 50's.

Browse through the wonderful toys are parents grew up with...Model trains, dolls, cars and trucks...and the great decorations of that bygone era with the wonderful glass ornaments, bubble lights, and aluminum trees.

Filled with fun and interesting facts about the times, the sense of nostalgia you get when going through this great book is awesome. Really makes you wish you had grown up during that era.

If I have a minor complaint its that I wish the book was longer.

Please aluminum trees were awful!!!!! We cried every Xmas when my parents dragged that damn tree out of the crawlspace along with the colorwheel. No other ornaments needed. It was plain laziness-we finally won as my parents became tired of complaining children.
