1959 Astronaut Images for You

Isn't it always the way? Santa brings the kids brand new toys and a week later, they bring out their tried and true old toys?

And when I say old, I'm not talkin' last year's Christmas toys, I'm talkin' 1959 Christmas toys!

I took these adorable pictures of the Remco "Moon Man" game.

The kids asked me to play with them this morning and while admiring the really cute characters, I thought maybe others would admire them too.

These pictures would be adorable for scrapbooking and journaling, don't you think?

I don't know if little boys are into astronauts these days, but I figured if someone was planning a space-themed party, you could use these images for decorations or invitations.

Wish I knew how to use Photoshop. For now, I just print, cut, and paste the old-fashioned way!

I tried to capture different sizes for you too.

Enjoy the rest!

Pow-Zooom! To the Moon, Alice!

This was one small step for man, and one giant step for scrapbookers!


  1. I love it. Moon bucks!!!! Probably worth more than our dollar. Cute post. Patsye

  2. Love this, Jill! Now I am inspired to get out my Uncle Wiggly game and do the same with that game board - it was my favorite in the preschool years! Such sweet illustrations . . .

  3. You are so right! These would be fabulous for scrapbooking and journaling. I love these characters! Thanks for sharing.

  4. 1959 was an awesome year...I was born into a world of very cool toys!

    1960 got even more fun with more Barbies and more toys...

    1961-1965 I played with Liddle Kiddles and Chatty Cathy and dolls became real.

    1966 I confess I started to play with the Texaco Fire Truck and old Buck Rogers and Bat Masterson games and Star Trek became facinating...

    Those were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end...
    May your children hold these oldie but goodie toys dear.

  5. um-hum-I was born in 1959. ; )
