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 a little bit 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 really work 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. you can ask questions anywhere in the comments, i am usually able to answer by the following day.. 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 ~
