Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil

Obviously this product has nothing to do with electricity, it is just a patent medicine. But once electricity started to be available there was a major fad naming everything from medicine to toothbrushes to corsets, electric, even though they had absolutely nothing electric about them.

I admit I had one of these when I was a child. It was made of metal, I think it was tin, and it was printed inside and out with lots of detail. The furniture however, was pretty crude and made of flimsy plastic.

Overall, though I had a lot of fun with my first dollhouse. My next one was a huge Barbie dream house, which I liked better, but I do had happy memories of my little tin doll house.
