QuickPics: Vintage

It's hard to define when a toy is considered vintage. When do they get that label? Is it a toy created 20 years ago? 10 years ago? I've read that 7 years is the key number, but no matter how it's defined, there's a certain je ne sais quois that vintage toys have that many of us find appealing. For me, it's that certain funk factor in design that vintage has over modern. It's hard to describe, but when I see it, it hits me and the term "old school" is immediately branded on the toy. And I'm fascinated by it. What draws you to vintage toys?
