Baby's Toy Box A Golden Book

Children's Board Book

Fantastic pictures of vintage toys in action!

This copy is in poor to fair condition, but the pictures are so great that perhaps someone would want to take this home with them.  The book is in awful shape.  It looks as if the book was perhaps used as a doggy chew toy!  But it's kind of appropriate for an old book with vintage toys photographed within.  A neglected document of neglected toys.  The most forlorn book imaginable!  Won't you give it a home?
