Roll ’em! Thanks to the Brinkman Engineering Co. of Dayton, Ohio, you didn’t have to leave the house in order to enjoy a good round of bowling. The Bowling Alley #500 features a mechanized bowler that can launch a ball down the lane, which includes gutters, a pinsetter mechanism and a ball-return rail. Brinkman was also known for its mechanized toys including a baseball game, Whirlpool and Hurdle tabletop toys, as well as the skooter-skate, which were all popular in the years before World War II.
