I never saw these toys before but BOY wouldn't it have been swell to have had that burned out village in my neighborhood! Gee-whiz!

Don't you know those baby boomers in post-war Europe had the best of times playing army when they were kids.

"Hey, look Bobby, a real bum!"

"Yes Timmy, and I just found a Gerry luger with a finger still in the trigger."

Back in the early to mid-sixties, some of the greatest faux-killing war toys were made by MARX toys. As a kid - I liked the guns that looked real. Nazi's back then didn't know if they were going to have to play dead or be dead.
