Remember These?

I bought them some twenty or so years ago. The grandchildren from the first to almost the last has played with them for hours on end. I do not know if I have another toy that has brought so much enjoyment to them. As you can see, though, there are not very many left. Things happen, they get stuck in little pockets, stepped on and broke, taken outside and lost, chewed on, you know the drill. So, since Levi, #6620 gets them out as soon as he comes over, I thought I might run down to Wally World and pick up another bag of them.  No such luck. You see, these toys are not PC. You cannot buy them any longer. Apparently by playing with these the children are learning ugliness or something.

In my house, all I can say is it looks to me like Stan's ancestors are winning the battle.  There are more "Inians" left than Cowboys.  I am sure Levi will be perfectly content with what we have, but I can't help but shake my head. I wonder if Goodwill got the memo, maybe I can still find some there.
How about you, do you have troubles with kids playing with these toys?

I believe my kids had some of these. They had lots of fun with them. Have a blessed day. Madeline

We don't have any but I remember playing with a similar set at my Grandma's house. I don't think there is anything wrong with them, what a strange world we live in now.
