When I arrived I was bombarded with questions from my kin “Why do you have to peddle all that devil stuff?”
Ok, I'm a multi-dimensional kinda guy. I appreciate a rainbow of genres. (including the esoteric). But just because I fancy the occult don’t you dare pigeon hole me. I collect all sorts of nonsense. (Don't even get me started on my collection of My Little Pony figurines!) I’m a father. I have children. I also collect vintage kids stuff. (I’m fascinated at how upsetting some of the old vintage kids imagery was.)
So let’s take a look, shall we.
1. A CHILD’S GARDEN OF VERSES, 1919: It's like a blast from the past, but in paper form. Not only is this century-old relic a treasure trove of poetry celebrating the joys of childhood and the wonders of nature, but it also boasts some pretty fantastic artwork that has held up surprisingly well over the years. Who says old books have to be musty and moldy?
2. CIRCUS, 1941. Disregard the description card stating this was from this 60’s. This goes back twenty years earlier. This 4 record set of circus music was made by Columbia. It features the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Band. Bring back the memories and spectacles of a trip to the virus with these vinyl relics.
3. RAGGEDY ANN’S SUNNY SONGS, 1931: talk about dolls that frighten. Before Billy, Annabelle, and Chucky, Raggedy Ann was terrifying the little ones. The records feature 11 songs on Raggedy Ann, a character created in 1915 by Johnny Gruelle. Legend has it if you play these records backward you can conjure the demon of Raggedy Ann herself.
4. BOZO AND THE BIRDS, 1949: speaking of clowns that terrify me… something about Bozo makes me sad on the inside. Hence why I buy Bozo swag whenever I see it. This record comes with a follow along picture book. Note one record is missing, one is included.
5. CHILDREN’S PLAY MATE MAGAZINE, 1946: Games, puzzles, riddles, and pictures of creepy clowns.
