I am looking for a list of five toys for a boy that were released in
1963.  For example, a truck or a car, etc. The key is that it was
released for retial in 1963.

Additionally, I am looking for a list of five toys for a girl that
were relased in 1969.  Again, the key is that they are girl toys, i.e.
dolls, or the easy bake oven, etc.
There is no answer at this time.

Finding ten toys that were released in 1963 is likely to take more
time than most Researchers would be willing to expend on a $2.00
question. If you don't get the results you seek, you may want to
increase your price.

If I cut the list to two toys, would that be helpful?

Cutting the list to two toys might help. However, the fee is still
rather low. This kind of detailed search may take more time than you

Hi elpresidente,

In addition to the Mini-Tonka Jeep, here is what I was able to find:

"The 20? Street Series Schwinn Sting-Ray went on to become what
Schwinn believes to be the fastest selling bicycle of all time, and
has been nominated for the 2004 Toy of the Year award at the Annual
International Toy Fair Awards, hosted by the Toy Industry
"The original Sting-Ray, widely considered the most popular bicycle of
all time, was first introduced in 1963..."


"These interesting "grow hair" dolls were a big hit for Ideal Toys
throughout the decade of the 70s.  Each doll had a unique feature that
would allow her hair to grow to several lengths with a turn of a knob
or push of a button.  The first doll introduced in 1969 was 18"
Beautiful Crissy, a gorgeous redhead."
