WHAM-O SUPER-BOOK

I highly recommend the WHAM-O SUPER-BOOK by Tim Walsh! The book was released back in October, and I just picked up my copy the other day.
From its Amazon listing's product description -- "Wham-O's irresistible toys practically define childhood for an entire generation. The Frisbee, Hula Hoop, SuperBall, Slip 'N Slide, Silly String and Hacky Sack are all cherished companions that brought kids together and still enjoy an enduring popularity today. Super-Book ("the most fantastic book ever created by science") showcases these amazing toys and a wide array of entertaining and downright odd playthings dreamed up by a company started by two childhood friends. Released in time for the 60th anniversary of Wham-O and featuring an engaging history of each plaything colorful vintage packaging and ads as well as photographs of the toys this boisterous book is sure to inspire nostalgia and a trip to the nearest park Frisbee in hand." Pick up your copy today!
