going for a walk

Among my prized possessions is a set of old fashioned walking toys.  Made in Hong Kong of hard, painted plastic, these three charmers walk without the benefit of batteries or electricity. Put them on an inclined surface and just watch! Their little legs swing in synchrony and carry them along.

As they walk, they make a tiny clicking noise. Sometimes they fall over before they reach the end of their path, but usually they forge on to the end.

The Mother Goose and Three Little Pigs were a gift from Santa about fifty years ago. The clever black cat with his red ball was added to my collection later.

This year I am going to include these fellows among my Christmas decorations, a small celebration of Christmas Past!

Do you have any of the toys from your childhood Christmases?
