Vending Machine Toys

Merry Christmas!  Remember these from the 50's? Vending machine toys that would come in little plastic capsules. The ones above are actually mine that I saved all these 50 some years.
I liked the little yellow wooden yo-yo with the string dangling. But I think my favorites were the glow-in-the dark toys, the light bulbs and the lanterns. I was fascinated with those.
The little pocket knife was neat too. It opens and has a dull blade. The watch with an elastic band, the toilet seat (what was with that?), false teeth, kazoos, telephones, plastic picture frames with Gabby Hayes picture inside (light blue frame in first photo above), little trophies and medals; boy, they bring back so many memories.
