WOW Darrid,  those pieces look to be in great shape.   How are they mechanically ?    
These guys go "up on the rooftop" for display since that is about the only space you must have left !   LOL

Did you get the bag of presents too?   Such an awesome set !

No, they are some of my favorites! I have all the sets Hamberger made except one and out of all the sets I'm only missing one individual piece from the Sweet Set.

You have every Hamberger set except one? Could you please give me a complete list of all sets Hamberger made, as I have been searching for that for years. I have been searching for a site that has a catalog from every year after 1950-ish. However I've only seen three or four catalogs. Do you have a list?

Can anyone on here identify what set this is from? I thought at first it was from the Christmas morning set but it isn't there. Was it originally part of the set and then got dropped? Anyone know what set this is from? s-l225.jpg

It's the boy with roler skates from the Christmas morning set. The jack in the box was just added in.

You got that figure from Ebay recently so it was most likely a figure from the Willow run display in NJ

Here is the best picture of the "Christmas Morning" set. Not sure why it was only in one brochure.

     Coming from an area not having the advantages to animation makes it much more challenging to get any pieces. Unlike some, I only look for specific pieces for my yearly Christmas display plus for my parade float for my local town. I collect for a reason and that reason is to have these aged figures enlighten Christmas memories from people’s childhood that remember seeing these kind of displays when they were kids. Also, my purpose is to give children a display that they will remember because it’s definitely not something you see on a regular basis. However, since animation is so surrounded with people who enjoy keeping their figures in storage sheds it makes it difficult to want to continue collecting. It is something I’m truly passionate about because I grew up seeing these displays, but sadly collectors don’t truly understand the meaning behind them and would rather see how many they can collect each year as if it’s a hoarding game. I can really see that I got lucky with what I have (10 pieces only) and that is what I’m going to have to be content with because the future of these figures are already in hoarding hands.
