Ever wondered if Barbie had a last name? (It's Roberts.) Who invented Lincoln Logs? (John L. Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright.) Why a Wiffle Ball has holes? (So you can throw a curve without throwing out your arm.) Filled with a host of curious facts and little-known anecdotes about the creation and evolution of these and dozens of other timeless toys and games, Kid Stuff is a celebration of classic playthings, mostly from the 1940s through the 1960s, that are still popular today. Pairing colorful and evocative new photographs with reproductions of original ads and publicity shots, this delightful book reminds us why these toys live on -- both in our memories and on store shelves.
