The Golden Magazine for Boys and Girls, 1960s Vintage

Growing up, I remember that my favorite magazine was Jack and Jill, which we subscribed to.  I don't think I've ever seen The Golden Magazine for Boys and Girls before last week, when I found a box of these magazines in beautiful condition at an estate sale.  This magazine was published by The Golden Press, the publisher of Little Golden Books, and the illustrations and stories have a lot of cross-over.  They are so much fun to look through!  I wanted to share a few of these 1960's vintage magazine pages with you.  If you'd like to see the rest you will find them in my store - just click this link to visit Birdhouse Books.  This is a Halloween cover from 1967 - gorgeous art work!

Lots of great stories and art work, like this Halloween story illustrated by George and Irma Wilde:

A glimpse at childhood in the 1960's, like these Beatles and Monkees coathangers.  I want a Peter Tork clothes hanger!

Betty Crocker recipes for children -- great Mid Century illustrations:

Paper Dolls!  These are so cute!

My favorite - activity page cutouts like these gorgeous Valentines!
