I had the honor of writing an article for the website "Artifact Collectors" this week. It revolved around one of my favorite toys as a kid called "Little Van Goes". The toy was released in 1978 during the height of the van customization craze that was sweeping the U.S. It was a toy which allowed you to design your own custom van creations on paper, and you could then further customize your van by means of coloring.
