Toy Hitler

A popular toy in Nazi Germany was a miniature model of Hitler. It came in six action poses, including Hitler in an army jeep and in an open car doing the Nazi salute.

Not many of these toy Hitlers survive, so if you have one, for some reason, it's probably worth some money. One of them was featured on Antiques Roadshow in 2012.

I was just reading about the Munich Beer Hall Putsch and other Nazi activities in Bavaria in the 20's. Then I come to WU and see this post. I feel like I'm being sucked into WU's spooky entanglement syndrome.

Uh Oh, Virtual. Once you've been entangled, I'm not sure if de-entanglement is possible!

Oh well, go with the flow. I'll be on the lookout for wormholes.

I have a few of his sponsored Volkswagen automobiles and every time I start one up to go for a drive, I think of der Fuhrer sitting in the passenger seat along with me. Eighty years later and still going strong!

KDP: if only he'd stuck to design... he was actually tolerably good at that.
