Hi-o Wish Book, Away!

Here's another Wish Book ad featuring one of my many Christmas presents from childhood. This time out it's the Lone Ranger riding on Silver. This was one of the many toys that wound up on my dresser in the exact same position as in this ad. I hardly ever played with it. It served more as a statue than a toy. I had a high level of respect for this toy. I felt very cultured having it on my dresser. It was quite the gift!

I, sir, had that very same Lone Ranger - I believe from Christmas 1977 or 1978. I had torn the corner of the gift-wrapping pre-Christmas to see what it was (which I rarely did), so I had to be sure that I opened that gift first Christmas morning before Mom noticed my snoopery.

Sears Wishbooks Forever! Woooooo!!!
