Chocolate Easter Bunny Mold

I was surprised to find this vintage chocolate Easter Bunny mold at a garage sale for $1.  These are actually fairly collectible.

Fill 'n Thrill

These "Fill 'N Thrill" eggs were made by the Peoria Plastic Company. 

They were founded in 1968, so the eggs date from some time after that. They don't appear to be in business any longer.

Easter Candy Dish

This plastic, scalloped candy dish is reminiscent of the Halloween dish I blogged previously I actually found about 5 of these at the same sale. I'm unsure of the age.

Musical Easter Egg

Other than being an egg, this toy didn't scream "Easter" when I first saw it.  Decorated with flowers and a gold finch (I think that's a gold finch), it looked more like an ode to Spring.  Turning the crank produced no music.  I thought maybe at one time it made bird sounds.

April Fools...uh...on me?

One of the reasons my posts are sporadic is my rigidity in wanting to publish something during the appropriate season, or even on an exact day.  I stage posts in folders to be blogged later in the year, then completely forget about them. Case in point, April Fools Day.  I had this page from the Holiday Fun book scanned and ready to go since this past summer.  I know I can schedule posts ahead of time, but I always think I'll remember when it gets closer to the actual day.

So enough with the excuses. I'm not waiting another year.  Enjoy this April Fool's joke on me.

p.s. I don't know if there was an answer key to this picture. You decide what's right and what's wrong. Personally, I could see all of this totally happening.
