Childhood dream house
For many years I’ve had a vague memory of a small toy I once played with at a neighbor’s house; I seemed to recall long plastic handles with magnets on the end with which you could manipulate small people/figures inside a house. I had no idea what this toy was called or where it came from — and there were plenty of times I thought I must have imagined the whole thing!
So imagine my surprise when, browsing through a shop full of knick-knacks in Old Sacramento, I came upon a small house with some very familiar tiny rooms, plus a flagstone veranda…
It was such an odd feeling to stand there in the shop, with my childhood memories flooding over me! I couldn’t afford to buy the little house, so I did the next best thing and took pictures. I wonder if anyone else remembers this charming little house from their childhood?
