I'm 63 years old an I remember the toys of the fifties, which many were from the forties. I have often said they do not make them like that any more. But after seeing this book on Forbes Toy Boats, I would again like to say, that they "Really" don't make them like that any more. This book is filled with toy boats that look like they were made for a collecter back in the 1900s, not for a children. But apparently they were. This is a great book an it is worth taking the time out to look at an then, well I'm happy I bought it.
Yes I love it. I can see why Malcom Forbes and his adult son enjoyed this hobby. I wish I could afford to own some of these boats.
