Creative Playthings Brick-on-a-String


After the corporate takeover of Creative Playthings, executives at CBS did try to stay true to the simple, imagination-fueling design principles the toy company had pioneered. But between the knockoffs and the red diaper nanny staters starting the CPSC, the Brick-on-a-String never really had a chance.

This one's a survivor, though; looks like it's clubbed quite a few toddlers in its day. Stamped authentic, accept no substitutes.
