If you took better care of your toys you wouldn't need Ultra-One
 




 

My sandbox wasn't really big enough for it, so this one was an indoor toy.  I'm sure I've still got the magnet somewhere, but it isn't in the box.

 You're full of surprises Dan!  The best part is you kept the box it came in!  I remember you telling me that your were a gentle kid and still had most of you're childhood toys. 
 
Nylint numbered all of thier Michigan Shovels in the 2200 range, there were several variations over that toys long production run.  Here's our No. 2200 from the mid '50s.
 

 
This is the second version.  It is identical to the first version except for having single rear wheels.  Here's a great photo reference site on Nylint Toys:

Play in, perhaps...  but at least I wouldn't set it on fire when it didn't meet my expectations

Yeah, no formal toy collecting here, I just come from a long line of pack-rats.

and I don't know about gentle.  I wasn't ever intentionally destructive, but the outdoor toys certainly don't look that good.  I also had a banna box full of the orange Hot-Wheels track, and a stepladder in my Grandparents basement, and a whole lot of banged up cars to prove it. 




 
 
The real question is what WAS stored in that box from the early 70's until the truck went back into it in the late 80's?   Did I mention pack-rats?  Jimmy Hoffa may well be somewhere in my Mom's basement.
 
 
The fun part of keeping all that stuff is getting to share with my 3 year old nephew.  So far I think the Fisher-Price Jet has been the favorite, although the F-P parking garage is up there as well.

It's knowing where everything is that creates the problem!
