Hmm... it might be fun to track down one of those old hockey games! I'm pretty sure the photo I posted is the exact brand of the one we had: of all things, the background crowd gave me deja vu. And I remember as a kid being disappointed that they repeated the same painting on both sides of the game rather than creating a full, 360 image.

Neighbors had one of the vibrating football ones. Loud as hell as I recall.

The game from which your picture was taken was definitely made by Eagle/Coleco since NHL uniforms are reproduced:

Quote from: Oldtime Games
Eagle's games had the official endorsement of the NHL and could replicate exactly the uniforms of its teams.


Since it has metal players it had to be from no later than 1971:

Quote from: Oldtime Games
In 1971, safety concerns forced a switch to plastic men with self-adhesive team labels that customers applied themselves.


But "safety concerns"? What/how? More likely it was just a case of Coleco and Munro cheapening out and attempting to save a few pennies in manufacturing costs.

The plastic sticks though indicate to me that your game was probably produced later rather than earlier in the sixties.

Did your game feature the Montreal Canadiens in their red jerseys and the Toronto Maple Leafs in their blue jerseys? If so, in what city did you buy it?

Check out this link for a comprehensive writeup on the history of these games:

If you contact the author, he may from the picture be able to quickly identify the exact model you and your brother had.

The Give-A-Show Projectors that Kenner put out in the 1960's were also very cool. Here are pictures of one from my collection:

Are those pictures printed on film, or a clear celluloid?

I believe the latter but I will check tonight.

They must be, if you're able to shine a light through them.

They're some type of coloured transparent celluloid.

As a young tyke I had an Ohio Art Ring Toss game with seriously wild cool graphics on the hallway wall. Here's the one from my present day collection:





Not quite among my top fifteen toys but still worth mentioning!

I don't believe that I was ever aware of the Marx playsets in their full glory when I was a kid. Sure I accumulated a bunch of toy soldiers and animal figures over the years out of rack packs sold at corner variety stores and elsewhere, but I don't remember ever seeing a full Marx playset of any sort. None of my friends had one. I don't remember seeing any in the downtown Kresge, Woolworth, Metropolitan or Zellers five-and-dime stores that my mother haunted. Nor did the corner hardware stores where I bought many of my model kits stock the Marx playsets. I guess these sets were sold in the toy departments of the full-fledged department stores such as Eaton's and Simpson's but my mother steered me well clear of those. Nor did Marx advertise these playsets on TV.

But I've now had the good fortune to make the acquaintance of several very keen Marx playset and/or dinosaur figure enthusiasts/collectors including Horrorhunter and Bigbud on this board. They've infected me with their enthusiasm and as a result I've now developed quite the appreciation for the playsets myself. At some point I'd liked to acquire several of the Marx playsets with the following being particularly high on my list of priorities:

Prehistoric Times







Dinosaurs! Wow!

Ben Hur





I've been a big fan of the Romans since I was a kid.

Western sets featuring Cowboys and Indians.





Me I've always cheered for the Indians!





Wow, Mohawks! Talk about cool!

As a kid I loved plastic bagatelles because they were as close to a pinball machine as a kid could get for home use. Here are a couple of photos of my Marx Nutty Mads Bagatelle Game:





And here are a couple pictures I lifted off the net of the wild cool Fireball Bagatelle that Marx issued in the late fifties(?):

That Give a Show Projector is just like my Doctor Who one. It is my oldest Doctor Who item, and I took it to an Antiques Roadshow appraisal and was told it was worth about $800.







Love this thread. I will add my list.
