|This is a G.I. Joe doll
from the 1960's or early 1970's. Boys in the 1950's didn't really
have "action figures" like they do today. G.I. Joe was one of the
first "boy's" version of "Barbie." He was a very active toy and
even had helicopters and tanks as well.
Children took very special
care of their toys in the 1950's. When they broke, they got fixed
not replaced. Children had fewer toys and took very good care of
each of them.
