(And yes, that's a camera obscured self-portrait.)
But I'm pretty sure it was used in someone's house before coming to AA.
This row held 1981 Happy Meal Toys. Specifically Miss Piggy and Kermit toys. The middle drawer had 1985 Camp Snoopy toys and the far right drawer had the 1977 action series glasses. Again... am I the only one old enough to remember when you could get glass glasses from McDonald's? We had a whole set of them when I was growing up. Hamburgler, Grimace, Ronald, Mayor McCheese... What was up with McDonald's not having any female characters?
This one says "1935 Hot Wheels" but I'm pretty sure the number and the item have nothing to do with each other. First of all, Hot Wheels started producing cars around the same time I was born... roughly 1972. But also, the black numbers seem to be the original labeling while the fading red marker seems to go with the latest owner's collecting.
I also have to wonder about the owners/managers labeling a given item as "cool" (see the top left corner of the tag.) Does that mean that anything they don't label *isn't* cool? Should we not buy something not labeled 'cool' for fear of being uncool? And who are they to decide whether or not something is cool or not for everyone. And that's really what it meant. There were several signs around the warehouse that had this on it. It wasn't a weird inventory number or anything. It really is just telling you "this thing is awesome... at least someone around here thinks so." Weird.
