My brother or I received a toy medical kit from our parents in the mid 1960's.
Ears, eyes, throat, pulse and use of a toy Stethoscope was about the extent of it's use. We may have added some other supplies to the kit.
Just imagine how much a real medical set would cost. You can get an idea of the cost by looking at one of my photo albums on the topic.
Just for fun, I thought I would make a list of items that could be found in a doctor's bag of the 1950's or 1960's.
