  1. I almost feel sad when I see the 1930s children's items, as I keep imagining that most kids didn't have the money to buy such items, or that, if they received such items, they themselves (the kids) were in bad shape, so that they weren't exactly able to create the happy childhood scene that such items evoked.

    I think that these items may hold more value for collectors than they do for those people who were kids back then, except in the cases of those people who clung to such items with hopefulness during The Great Depression.
