Sincerely, I can not thank you enough for posting this link. So many memories in these pages, I would be bankrupt if I could order from them.
Oh yea, miss those days. Was telling my kids about this last week. Nothing like getting the catalog and circling what all you wanted.
Thanks for the flash back! I can remember looking at them when I was young. (Circa 1969)
Those were awesome. As I got older, I really looked forward to the huge hardback book from cabelas every year

Well, I do have my old Legos (even some train stuff) are still around I’d my wife didn’t give them away yet.
Wished we had kept some of those. Those were oogled over for hours in my youth. Cool toys for sure.
Wow. This is awesome! Thanks for the link. Fun looking back at toys from back in the day

The problem was, it did not work well on the prairie because the wheels just sank into the earth. He got frustrated with the toy and never had fun with it. His own father said in disappointment, “why don’t you smile like the boy in the catalogue?” I shared the link from op with my dad and he actually found the catalog picture. Here it is:
