A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

The Thing

This battery operated novelty toy bank is based on the disembodied hand (Thing) made famous on The Addams Family television show. Placing a coin in the coin holder causes the box to shake like there’s something in it, and then a spooky green hand moves up and grabs the coin.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
