One of my favorite memories from my childhood was getting the Sears, JCPenney, or Service Merchandise Christmas wishbooks delivered to our house. My
mother would give me a pen to circle toys that I wanted Santa to bring. Of course Santa didn't bring everything, but I would usually get several
things. I would look through these catalogs countless times in the days leading up to Christmas day.
Low and behold, someone has collected, scanned and created a website devoted to these 'wishbook' catalogs.
They have catalogs from the 1930's to the 1980's. I'm an 80's kid, so I took particular interest in those. Looking through them again takes me
back to my childhood as if Marty McFly himself dropped me off in the Delorean. It's also cool to check out the catalogs from the 40's and 50's.
Check out those prices!
Hope some ATS'ers get as much joy out of this site as I did. Also, feel free to comment with your favorite toy you got for Christmas. Mine was
probably the Atari 2600 or a number of different Lego sets I got over the years. I apologize in advance for all of the hours this is going to
