Pre-loved, pre-1970 space toys

Ebay is a strange, strange place — it essentially hosts a bunch of stuff that people have and want to get rid of. Recently I’ve become quite fascinated with looking at its listings of space toys from before 1970. These are future-themed toys from the past, so it makes so much sense to actually see these in the present.

And yet I can’t imagine any actual kids from today actually playing with any of these toys. Maybe just overgrown adult-sized kids. Here are some of the toys: they are odd and funky all at once.
