1. Cast Iron Banks That Flip Coins Inside

Around the turn of the 19th century, an insidious way to get others to put coins in your bank. Flips 'em in faster than you can actually see, so it has to be done again and again. Also doubles as a weapon -- heavy blunt object in a kid's room. See also Old-Timey.

4. Reaching For The Brass Ring

In the early days of amusement park carousels, kids riding a circling wooden horse up & down, were encouraged to lean WAAAAYYYY out to grab a brass ring hanging out of a wall dispenser. Redeemed for a ticket, the next ride was FREE. It was a prize if you took and won the risk. Dangerous but VERY popular. See also Old-Timey.
