Battery Day is a day to reflect on how our lives have been made easier by the battery. I think the introduction most people have to the power of the battery would be through children’s toys. Remember when you were a kid, and you had tons of fun playing with battery-operated toys like self-propelled cars, talking dolls, and robots with light-up eyes and laser guns? I know I do! The kids of today seem to know little of these classic toys, unless they’re of the smartphone, tablet or portable video game variety. Battery-operated as they may be, they’re nowhere near the same.
This treasury is filled only with old, vintage battery-operated toys. I’m sure at least one of these will happen to be a toy you had as a kid, or perhaps just remind you of something you used to play with. If any of these items start to make you feel a bit nostalgic, I strongly encourage you to visit all these shops. Most of them specialize in vintage items and you’ll have yourself an awesome walk down memory lane. Remember to have a look at some of my other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries here!

“Every Day is a Holiday” is my Etsy Treasury project for 2014. I’m hoping to find unique and beautiful items that exemplify the holiday of the day—the sillier and weirder, the better! What’s better than finding something worth celebrating each and every day?
