The 40 Year Old Version

Remember my super cute wooden camera from the other day? Well one of my other finds arrived today (I have a few more coming and yes you have to look at them all). This toy camera was born in 1968, the same year that my husband was. I call him Grandpa, I can do that because he’s turning 40 and I’m a spring chicken who is only turning 35 this year (ok kidding about that spring chicken part, but I’m pretending, it’s the internet just visualize a spring chicken will ya?).

I got it for the unbelievably low price of .99 plus shipping. Another one to add to my ever growing collection. So this camera is the 40 year old version of the little one from the other day.

Oh and speaking of 40 year old things it made me think of The 40 Year Old Virgin movie (which I love) that stars Steve Carell, who is on The Office which FINALLY comes back on tonight at 9pm on NBC (or 8pm for you central time zone peeps). That is one of my favorite shows ever, if you haven’t had a chance to check it out I promise you will laugh out loud.

YEA!!!!!!!!! You got your header fixed. No more choppage. I love it. It’s big bold and beautiful. I remember all my neices and nephews having those cameras! Does the flash bulb on yours still spin when you push the shutter button? very cool

Oh my goodness! Priceless. My dad had this camera when he was little and my grandmother still has it. MY children, her great-grandchildren still play with it. And she remembers buying it because they didn’t buy store-bought toys very often and it was a big deal. Very cool.

lol, your posts always make me laugh! The camera is super cute and I hope you will get a shot of your WHOLE collection for us :-)
Have you seen Dan in real life? Steve Carell plays such a different role, but is still painfully funny.

OH I love these! OMG, they bring back memories of those toy cameras I had as a child, but they were plastic ones and not quite this old. BUT, these brought back great memories all the same. Thanks for sharing. I can’t believe you got them so cheap! To me, they are worth so much more!
