hi & welcome to the lost & found vintage toy blog ~
i'm bren, & this is my anniversary post, i've tried to post a toy, children's book or collectible every day since i started this site & i hope to continue to do so indefinitely. i collect vintage toys, books & pop culture items, including holiday, retro or even contemporary toys that i particularly like. i have a website called gumbyland that i've maintained for many years, since my biggest collection is of the 50's character gumby! i also paint & write & create art installations, dollscapes, miniature houses & digital art so i have a gallery of my art up at gumbyland for anyone interested. there are links in the sidebar & footer to all my different sites & pages.
i try to find all the toys & books i lost in childhood, & whenever i mention the nickname 'toxic' i am referring to my own inner child (& yeah i am dysfunctional.) also i've been known on the web for years as 'ghost' since i like to photograph old cemeteries.. if you're looking for a particular toy or item please try the search box & the categories list in the sidebar, although i've found neither seems to find all of the items i've posted, so you might want to peruse through the archives. also i try to go back & update old posts where appropriate so check back. vintage kids & nostalgia buffs please feel free to comment on any of the posts new or old & share your memories here.. my toy room has changed since i first started posting, so here's an updated look ~
