Timeless Toys

WSKG tv

Explore the stories behind some of America’s classic toys with Timeless Toys!

From the wood and glass toys of World War II to the space-age toys of the 1950s and 1960s, toys capture the essence and spirit of a generation. As they adapt to changing technology and cultural shifts, toys offer a fascinating window into the past. We profile modern classics, like Hartland Figurines and Marx Playsets, as well as historical toys, like wind-up toys that have entertained families for centuries and “premiums”, which have made your cereal fun since the 1700s. Learn the story of local start-ups, like Fisher-Price, which had a cofounder based in Binghamton, NY.

Join us on this nostalgia filled journey as we go in search of Timeless Toys.
