1969 was the last year in the 60's decade and dominated by MOD fashions and anything related to Mans Landing on the moon with rockets and telescopes. Car model manufacturers were abundant with Matchbox, Hotwheels and Corgi all producing model cars. Outdoor fun included Hoppity Hops, Unicycle and the Aerobat. Tape recorders and players were in a transition period with 8 Track players, reel to Reel tapes and Cassette players all on sale, just a few years later the others would fall by the wayside leaving Cassette as the dominant tape player, and just three decades later the cassette is all but dead as the CD takes over. While looking back to earlier years in the decade I realized I had not included any books and have tried to address that this year, books and magazines were an extremely integral part of growing up in the 60's so I hope I have redressed the balance slightly.
