Styrene novelties were the toy of choice during the late thirties and forties in the United States. Even World War II did not dampen the American public's love affair with these inexpensive colorful objects. The war ended but the romance continued, with all sorts of styrene plastics--candy containers, banks, party favors, holiday decorations, baby toys, stocking stuffers, partyware, and kitchen decorations. The list marches on. This fun book is about those plastic novelties that flourished at the end of the Art Deco era. Charlene Pinkerton gives collectors and dealers plenty to see, in a photo-packed book of more than 600 color prints, a price guide, and enough information on these wonderful collectibles to satisfy everyone!
Charlene Pinkerton is a member of the American Plastics Historic Association, and says that she is "of Bohemian/ European descent with a flair for the performing arts and a life-long commitment to them."
