56/60 and I call not fair on that scully game. I think that was a regional thing - not played nationwide

I got 56/60. I agree that some of these were regional.

I don't think I've ever seen the scully game and grew up in New England. Wikipedia says that it was played in NYC and other urban areas with bottle caps or checkers.

56 seems to be the popular score. I missed Skully (live in NE), the car racing set (all girls in my family) and that turtle!

Thanks for the fun!

That was fun! I was an quite a roll at first and then stumbled on a few. I got 53/60. I did not know the game, the turtle, the car game, the hairstyle and a flaw on one that I got right but was marked incorrect

%6/60. That was entertaining! It's surprising how some odd memories come back to you.

58/60. I would not have known about Scully if dh had not been raised in NYC. He talked about all the street games they played. Scully was one of the safer ones!

Got 56/60 I think the car question should have had seat belts as a choice. I remember mom's filling the car to go on school field trips or Girl Scout outings. No worry about having enough seat belts, car seats, or not kids in the front.

57/60- though many of my answers were based on things I have read about but not experienced. They were before my time- as I was born in 1961.

I never knew the popular toy to teach biology.
I just took a wild guess on a bunch of them. It was so fun to see some old items though.
I had never seen the lady movie star either.
You scored 54 out of 60 Retry
You just about got the whole kit and caboodle!
I wasn't born yet in the 50's.
Thanks for posting! That was a blast from the past!
