Now this isn't exactly 50's but it is a wonderful set of neat "things for kids to do" that I loved as a child. It was in a set of childrens books that I grew up with only to lose over the years. I searched high and low for the set but could never find more than one or two of the books at a time and they were usually in horrid shape. Finally I found the entire set on ebay and purchased it. I spent a whole sunday going through the books and going back in time. How I love these books! Some of you might recognize these pages.
These are still great fun if you ask me for kids of a younger age. I wish I could find a whole group of these!
