TOYS Are Better This XMAS Most of this year's toys are made from wood but fliey are nitich belter toys than we got last year. They are not only sturdier built but are better finished. . . . And many of them are made from hardwoods. Also they are far more colorful. We believe you will be delighted with the improvements. More Choice This year's selection Includes a vast variety of trucks, trains, various sized wagons, doll furniture, wheelbarrows, guns, tanks, airplanes and pull toys. Military toys are much In "eVidence—many of them surprisingly authentic in design. Scarce Items Some toys have been very hard to locate in quantities to meet demand; viz. Doll buggies, doll high chairs, toy pianos and better class dolls. We are receiving limited supplies of these items, but they don't last long. Right now we are showing a very attractive doll high chair, priced at $2.95. More doll buggies are expected soon, as are toy pianos. And we have a fine stock of beautiful dolls. Prices Yes, prices do seem high, but they are lower than a year ago and the toys are much better built, too. Bear in miiid that toys made of wood require more hand work and thus involve more labor. Lay-Away t We offer early shoppers our convenient lay-a-way plan. A much better choice of toys is available if you make your selections NOW.
