Land of Lost Toys
         Somewhere, beyond the Milky Way, in the vast reaches of Cyberspace, there is an enchanted kingdom, called, "The Land of Lost Toys.”  This distant corner of oblivion has become the final resting place of a lifetime’s worth of well-intentioned toy inventions that either never happened, or happened momentarily, then, quickly went away.  For every known toy I created, there was a multitude of others that never saw the light of day.  Most of these concepts never became contenders, nor progressed very far.  Others came close to being winners, but, in the end, got no cigar!”

        
Many of these presentations were quite elaborate, and because they never sold, are still complete.  Others, on the other hand, are merely the remaining remnants that miraculously managed to survive after would-be buyers had their way with them, and tossed them back again.  Still other ideas never progressed, beyond a single drawing or a few sketches, to begin with.  The surprisingly good, the embarrassingly bad, and the hideously ugly are all tucked indiscriminately into every secret nook and cranny, throughout the enormous old schoolhouse, in which I live.  I stumble across new old toy ideas every day.  In the future, at least, what future I have left, I intend to add the presentations that I come across to this growing list, rather than merely tossing them back again.  I’ll also contribute a few words of explanation, and add what fragments of information I can recollect . 

         
Therefore, Dear Reader, this is your opportunity to place yourself in the role of a toy company executive.  Which, if any, of the toy concepts, below, would you choose to produce?  To find out, just CLICK on any image in this ever-growing list.
