Yesterday I too possession of a new book: Plastic Novelty toys of the 40's 50's and 60's by Jean Rossi. Its a lovely glossy book and covers many of hard plastic toys that appeared in the US, many of which were seasonal.
Easter, Halloween and Christmas toys feature heavily and many involve the characters associated with those holidays.
There are loads of Easter toys covered: Bunnies on rockets, bunnies driving cars and lots of plastic cups, which originally held a chocolate egg.
From reading the book I would say that there were far more Easter toys available in the US than in the UK. Did any of our American readers receive Easter toys back in the day?
Did any of are readers get toys at Easter time?
