Fun things at Lofty Pursuits
Fun things on display at Lofty Pursuits.
There is a lot of history on display at Lofty Pursuits. Look around at our vintage toys. We have a yoyo museum and a collection of vintage yoyo award patches and trophies. You can also find our original Frisbie pie tin. This returnable pie tin is what was tossed around and later became the throwing disc we all know. Also make sure you look at our display of Victorian candy making machines and molds. Check out the Haiku vending machine, poetry for a quarter. Also check out our nonpay phone. It's an original 1920's payphone that has been rewired to play recordings and let kids experience a rotary phone. There are recordings for all sorts of famous phone numbers. Try calling Jenny, James Bond or Alfred Hitchcock.
Dial HELP on the payphone for more information.
