Free Toy Giveaways for Christmas! UPDATED: We Have Winners!

It's time for another Free Toy Giveaway!

This time the giveaway features Girls Toys & Boys Toys for Christmas. Growing up in the 1970s, that's how the big Sears Wish Book and JC Penney catalogs divided up their offerings (not that we paid any attention to such distinctions) and so it is with a sense of nostalgia, not misogyny, that I offer these two lots. (Click on the pictures for more detail.)

First up is a set of 1960s Skediddle Kiddle Magic Stay-On Dolls. Included in the original box are all 3 glossy hardboard dolls, tons of paper clothes (some cut out, but many not), 2 doll stands, and the original pink plastic scissors. These dolls are so cool: the paper clothes just stick to them like magic (hence the name). Also in this lot is a Shirley Skediddle Kiddle doll, with her original clothes, molded shoes, hair bow, and pusher!

The next set is a lot of vintage James Bond action figures made by Gilbert Toys in the 1960s. Includes M, Miss Moneypenny, Dr. No, Bond in "casual wear", and Oddjob with his deadly hat. These are unplayed-with old store stock, but they do have the many imperfections common in these crudely made old toys. Still fantastic vintage items for the Bond aficionado or spy toy collector.

The fine print: Free Toy Giveaways are open to adults in the United States, and are intended for people who want the toys for themselves, not for dealers intending to resell. I pay the shipping, so they are totally, incontrovertibly free. I just like sharing toys and making people happy. No hidden agenda other than that! To enter, just leave a comment telling me which lot you'd like and why. It's probably best not to put your address in the post: we'll get that info. later if you win. I'll take entries from December 1 -11, choose 2 winners at random, and send the items out in time for Christmas!

UPDATED: 12-11-09: We Have Winners! Yay!
