Do You Read Me?

Schiffer Publishing likes to toy around and to tell everyone about it.  That’s why author Leslie Singer and Schiffer have published a brand new book about vintage communication toys called Do You Read Me?
I can remember as a kid making my very own ‘telephone’ by connecting two tin cans together with a string and with me on one end and a friend on the other end of the line talking to each other.  And it worked, we could hear each other!

Forget the fact that we were standing maybe 20 feet apart.  We really thought we were something!

Inside this wonderful and fascinating book are dozens of color photos of vintage communication toys ranging from walkie talkies, radio stations, telephones, microphones, signal sets, decoders, wrist radios, tracking stations and loud speakers along with a huge plethora of other fun communication devices for kids dating from the 1930s up until the 1970s.

Look for promotion material, ads, artwork, vintage packaging, cutouts and so much more along with interesting text and facts.
