Yes, those were the days when men were men and toys were toys. I have a Science and Mechanics Toy building book that has some real gems. A toy stove with burners that really cook (red hot 110V burner elements), lined with asbestos sheets; toy railroad landscaping using powdered asbestos plaster; a roller-coaster with sleds that have roller-skate wheels and a kid sits on it, 10' in the air w/ no belt or constraint. And we lived!!!!!
