Since I’m on a bit of a nostalgia kick, here’s a photo of a Planet of the Apes tree house play set that I had as a kid. Now, the set above isn’t the one I actually owned, mind you (although, come to think of it, it could be — who knows what Mom did with the original), but a photo from a site dedicated to chronicling the great Mego toys of yesteryear.
I spent many a happy hour with my Apes action figures — don’t call ‘em dolls! — and this tree house, a memory jogged by the storm — helped return to earth of a newer POTA toy. That entry is here. It inspired Review Capitol Bureau reporter Marc Kovac to wax nostalgic about his own Mego Apes play set.
