Old Books With Library Cards in Them


Remember the days of signing your name to the library card?  I did a search on Pinterest for inspiration using the cards and other related items.  Browse through them here.  What's your favorite?

Vintage Games: Cowboys and Indians




Cowboys and Indians was put out by Hasbro.  This frontier set has several pieces that allows you to construct many different scenes.  The pieces are cardboard and have a crease that'll allow them to stand up. The cardboard locks together for the observation tower and "Fort Cheyenne" to give it a realistic look.

The Cowboy and Indian figures are made of plastic.

It would make a great display for a boys room.

On our previous post we featured the vintage game Spellola.  Which game will be next?

Vintage Card Games: Spellola


SPELLOLA was designed by a school teacher in Evanston, IL.  It's played like Gin Rummy.  The card game urges children to learn the correct spelling of familiar words and to increase their vocabularies by seeking out new words.

With no age or grade limit it's bound to be a great game for everyone.  A great educational tool for those who home school and/or tutor.
