Harvey's Special Xmas Toy Section!

Once a year, Harvey would devot a section of a comic to a "Special Xmas Toy Section," featuring pages of great toys for kids to look through. Let's have a look during this Christmas season of 2011 what children wanted from Santa over fifty years ago. This comes from Spooky, No. 28, 1959. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and love to everyone!

  5. Were my Flux Capacitor working, I would go back and get a "Wells Fargo Slammer" or a "Muttsy".

    Fantastic stuff Mykal. A Merriest of Christmases to you and all your readers!

  7. These toys are amazing. One time I ordered something from a comic book, it was these headphones which would let you hear things from far away, but it didn't work. Are some of the toys in here scams?
    My website's been back up comicsbyme.weebly.com
    Merry Christmas!

  9. I've seen Muttsy for sale at the antique mall a couple times... I never realized it was the same mutt from Sad Sack until this post! That Lassie Rider though is the most hilarious thing ever.

    And Casper looks great with a beard, I think!

  10. I'd buy the Flexy Racer.
    How come you took my website off your comic blogs list?

  11. Karswell: There is something vaguely . . . unsettling about that squat, bulbous Lassie Rider.


    Hussein: The link was gone for awhile. Now that it works, you are back on my bloglist.
