Popular Toys for Christmas in 1962: "Pick The Present Here For A Fun-Filled Future"

The kids are in show biz the minute they unwrap this Old Mississippi showboat. It has stage scenery, cutain, cut-out characters, and the script of four plays in big, easy-to-read type. Everyone gets into the act! by Remco.
Children get a great kick out of watching things grow. A "Little Garden" electric greenhouse comes with a supply of seeds, growning medium, trays, implements, and an instruction book. by Westinghouse Electric Corporation.
Youngsters with inquiring minds will be stimulated by Add-Venture kits. One of a series, the Lite-Writer introduces the magical world of phosphorescence. Special constellation cards encourage study of the stars. by General Electric.
The simplest gifts are greeted with the most gleeful gurgles from the tiny tots. A barn full of unbreakable farm animals in fantastic colors fit into stalls matching their own shapes. Safe and washable. Lakeside Toys.
Model motor racing provides thrills for all ages. Different track layouts can be assembled and racing of the miniature cars takes real skill and co-ordination. Buildings, new cars, and equipment can be added over a long period of time. Scalextric by The Lionel Corporation.

These toys have the approval of the Toy Guidance Council. (Mentioned here as well.)
