Perry Library Showcases Cosmic Toys

Regular readers of Monsterland Ohio know that we have gained a little experience in putting display case exhibits together. It is at the point now where you might even call it a hobby. So when we learned that Jason, the owner of Spaceman Floyd's Cosmic Toys, had been asked to do a display at the Perry Library, we jumped at the chance to help out. Our enthusiasm to volunteer may have shocked him a little bit, but he agreed to our offer. So, the next morning, he met us at the library, talked about some of the concepts for each shelf, and let us go to it.

The display is a good cross-section of the types of vintage toys that are available at the store. If you come visit, you will see Star Trek, Star Wars, WWF wrestlers, Twilight Zone, Godzilla, King Kong, the Visible Woman being assembled by other feminine toys, and even Teddy Roosevelt riding a dewback (a big lizard from Star Wars). And yes, there is much, much more. Hurry in to see it, because it will only be there through the end of September.

One more thing: Jason is doing a presentation at the Perry Library on December 2 at 7:00 p.m. He will be talking about vintage toys, of course, mixing toy history with the psychology of boys' and girls' toys, and all of it fun and fascinating. Hope to see you there!
