· Welcome to the wonderful world of nostalgia, classic toys and a look at the toys of the future. What children play with is very important. The toys selected are the ones you played with as a child, and that are still available to treasure and share with your child or grandchild.

Do you ever wonder why you loved that one perfect toy? Searching for an age-old classic to satisfy your wee one? Look no further, because Rizzoli/FAO Schwarz's Toys of a Lifetime has them all, from Winnie-the-Pooh to G.I. Joe and Tinker Toys to Crayola Crayons. Dr. Stevanne Auerbach has cleverly crafted the ultimate toy gift book, including enticing color photos by Ben Asen, information about the developmental benefits of each selection, and tons of interesting tips and factoids.  

Toys for a Lifetime features a select group of classic toys. Our definition of Classic means that the toy has proved over time to be safe, consistently popular, well-designed, practical and a good value for the money.

But, most of all, to be a classic, a toy must encourage a child's involvement. For example anyone who has ever tried a hula- hoop knows that it's a great challenge to swirl that colorful plastic hoop.

I really enjoyed reading the fact did it in in one sitting, as not only did it transport me back to my childhood, but it caused a flashback through my forty years in the toy industry. Seeing the great pictures and reading about toys and their histories that were either basic or became "hot items" was fun and brought back lots of memories of the toys themselves, the companies that made them, and most of all, the people I was involved with in the industry while these toys were "happening" Congratulations on a book well done!
