Toys in the 40s

World War II halts the production of metal toys for the first half of the decade, but the post-war years more than make up for it. Chutes and Ladders, Cootie and Candy Land delight the pre-adolescent set, Slinky makes kids crazy over a metal spring, Ertl die-cast toys bring the farm to the city, and the Magic 8 Ball answers all questions with its liquidy, mystical powers.
