|Watch them walk down a home made or store bought ramp or across a table and "mysteriously" stop at the edge before falling off (sometimes). And "no winding required". A simple plastic toy that you got from the local 5 and dime store,vending machine or from your favorite box of cereal or restaurant now may be worth hundreds of dollars to a collector. Ramp walkers date back to the late 19th century and were made of metal. My favorites however are the plastic medium sized ones that Marx came out with during the 1950's and 1960's. Some of the more popular variations include Flintstones, Jetsons and Walt Disney characters.|
