Vintage 60s snap cards




Am thrilled with my recent vintage Galt toys snap cards find from the 60s. I'm going to frame some for my daughter's bedroom. These images give me no end of pleasure. I think I should have been born in the 60s!

those are great, jane! i love the birthday cake one. i agree - i should have been born in the 60's too. i often day dream about all the neat stuff my grandma owned and i imagine going back to that time and wandering around a department store just picking out all the fabulous 'vintage' things i now spend a fortune on! haha

Wow, I really recognise those images, particularly the hedgehog. I think my brothers and I used to play with a set of these when we were little. Unfortunately we do not have them now!

what a coincidence, I found the same set at a carboot sale at the weekend in Exeter, although mine have squared corners. The box alone is a delight. I've just started organising them into theme pics. I've blogged the pics http://verykerryberry.blogspot.com/

Very nice.
Were these designed by Kenneth Townsend? The beefeater looks very familiar.

Wow, I used to have these in the 70's, my brother & I used to play pairs with them :-)

The good ol' days!

Nice find!
