Schylling toys: Let grandpa get nostalgic

Today’s feature is still missing one important thing, that part children care about the most, the toys that is.  The most affordable source for great vintage reproductions I could find is Schylling.  They really have some sweet tin toys and ride -ons that will make grandpa wish he were a little boy again, just so he could hop on that little racer like he used to in the good old days.  So letting your little ones bring along their nostalgic toys the next time you visit the grandparents may initiate some great story-telling and reminiscence of their favorite childhood memories.  And I bet your kids will find it quite fascinating to hear about a world of non electric, non-battery operated toys.  Schylling’s old-style robot toys on the other hand are just the right thing to make dad go back in time.  So whichever you chose, nostalgic fun is guaranteed!  But if you don’t care for a historic chit-chat, Schylling’s range of classical toys is fun to play with anyhow, and a real eyecatcher in the playroom, too, one you will be proud to put on the shelves, and don’t want to be hidden away in a toy box.

Available in Schylling’s online shop, ride-on $ 79.99, carousel $ 24.99, robot $ 17.99, plane $ 14.99.
