I am sure their imaginations were well exercised because of this. Honestly, aren't these the best type of toys, the kind we can concoct ourselves?? I am sure many a good engineer came from doing this too. Fun!!
Made dolls with clothes pins and cotton, made a scooter with a orange crate and piece of wood,[picket from a fence] and roller skates. put bottle caps on the front for decorations,we were cool. born in the 1930's.
I remember, we used our imaginations, made doll houses out of boxes, sears catalog to put curtains in the windows, etc. made paper doll out of sears catalog , plus clothes.
My siblings and I made our Easter baskets from strawberry boxes. They wern't plastic then but wood. Dyed them with food coloring and decorated the with crepe paper and pictures we cut out or anything else we liked. We thought they were beautiful!
My mom thru an old bed spread over the clothesline and nailed the corners into the ground. That was our favorite summer time fort and shade to nap in.
