The last pages of that French toy catalog

Coloring books, a box of paints, toy soldiers, rubber stamps, a needlepoint kit, trains, tools, toy guns, bicycles and baby carriages. I wonder if any of the actual toys depicted here could best the fantasy of this colorful cornucopia. One thing is for certain -- the toys are long gone, but the catalog continues to delight, more than 60 years after its publication. (More I think about it, I'm almost sure I found it not at a flea market but at Paula Hill's annual party, which is just around the corner.)
