I have to admit that I couldn't contain myself, and Dave and I went through the treasure trove last night. What wonderful things awaited Alex in that large box on the table. She was very excited to see what was in it.
Alexandra got right to work playing with the blocks and the lacing shoe (complete with The Little Old Woman & family). You can tell that these toys have been loved and played with-- what an unbelievable addition to Alex's collection! Some of these toys and puzzles are definitely collector's items, and they will be well taken care of and played with under supervision, of course.
Some of our favorites:
Holgate lacing shoe...
Holgate stacking train
Sifo 'Mailbag of Blocks' - manufactured in St. Paul, MN
Puzzles-- both wooden ones by Sifo and some character ones-- Roy Rogers and an old Woody Woodpecker to name a few!
Vintage 'peek-a-boo blocks'....some have moving parts!
