    oh, I forgot to comment to this one the other day. Of course, I know of most of these but I actually can't give names to half of them. I only really used numbers 4, 8, and 9. A few of them I am not even sure if I ever saw anyone use or not!! LIke numbers 13 and one. and a few others I am not sure I really know!! I loved when Dad brought out number 16!

    I did not know bus token. hahaha. Nor the laundry sprinkler (one of my least priorities even today) and skate key (I just figured it was any old key). Church key? My gosh, I thought THAT was a bottle opener!!! hmm, in reality I only knew kewpie doll, ice cream maker, radio, cootie, lamp(forgot it was hurricane lamp) and film cannister(I used it a LOT in Spain in the 70's) 5.5 score.
