When Remco released Fascination back in 1961 it was a little before my time but I did play with a severely worn out version of it when visiting a relatives house back in my youth. It was so worn out that it didn’t have the tower and only one of the balls for the plastic maze, I still enjoyed playing with it however. This was a relative by the way that truly seemed to have kept all of their own children’s toys and probably what helped to set me on the path of writing for the Retroist, enjoying playthings that had been new 20 to 30 years before my time.

  1. I never had the chance to play with one of these but my grandmother kept a bunch of my father and uncles old toys. Though these things were 20+ years old like Vic they seemed new and exciting to me every time we went over for dinner.

    I got this as a Christmas present when it came out. We played it till it wore out!
