Vintage Rex’s Toytown 1956 Toylane Christmas Catalog

By Sara In AZ

Hi everyone! I hope that y’all don’t mind, but I am still on a small break from my normal eBay ‘Kool Kitsch’ posts for a few weeks during Christmas…this girl needs a breather!

I came a cross some vintage toy catalogs a while back that were for sale on eBay from seller thelittlecatsgarden. Though the catalog is no longer for sale, I thought you would enjoy seeing the images anyway.

Vintage Mid Century TOYLANE 1956 Christmas Catalog


That ‘Early American Frontier Playset’ is sooooo adorable…..and the Bambi rocker too!


Oh my gosh, how cute – a miniature lantern!


Awwwww, you know that I love that Ballerina Doll!


Eeeeeeeeeeee!!! Those pink Wolverine appliances are SO cool!


The ‘Musical Tumbling Kitten’ would for sure be on my wish list….probably the squirrel too!


Ha! I LOVE how they have a fake shaver for little boys!



And finally, that ‘Dream Lite’ is so sweet….love those colors!


Hope this brings back great memories of searching through the ‘Wish Books’ when you were a kid!

    My faves: the ‘Broadcaster Radio Station’, the ‘Zimphone Switchboard’, and the ‘”Robo” Robot Dog’. I always love the techie stuffs. This catalog is a real gem. 🙂

    Aww, the pink kitchen toys!! We had a real size washing machine just like that when I was a kid..cool, but dangerous, my brother got his thumb caught in the wringer.
    And, is that a real electric iron for girls? I had to do real ironing when I was 9, but didn’t know they had these…times sure have changed.
