Vintage Uncle Sam Tin Register

Do you have a child, grandchild, niece or nephew, or neighbor who you buy presents for? Instead of going to Toys R Us or a department store, try a new approach: Vintage or vintage-inspired toys!

One suggestion is to look on Yelp for stores near you that sell vintage toys. Since we at Rubber Soul Vintage are located in San Diego, our Yelp search gave us suggestions for Forget Me Not in Pacific Beach, Posies and Ponies in La Jolla, and Ocean Beach Antique Mall in Point Loma.

Or if you enjoy shopping online, a quick search for vintage toys on Etsy gives over 55,000 choices! For $16, we found an amazing Tootsie Toy Camper. For $16.99, you can buy an Uncle Sam bank register marked Bucky Beaver and for $80, we found a dollhouse produced in 1951!

If you want a new toy that is vintage inspired, there is a great article published on Oprah.com. It’s titled “Stocking Stuffers” but these toys and gifts will work any time of year!
