    I wanted those x-ray glasses so bad when I was a kid. I thought I'd be able to see just what was under that dress....but I couldn't afford them so I still don't know what is under that dress!

    X-Ray glasses... hypnotism...

    Geez, the Leave It To Beaver era was more rapey than I thought.

    Imagine selling that stuff in today's world.

    I was always intrigued by this ad, but I already had a battalion or three of toy soldiers as it was...

    I actually ordered this in ‘63 or ‘64. Growing up in the military, I knew what a footlocker was and had visions of a huge box being delivered full of toy army men, ships and planes! Well, for starters nothing was in the same scale and everything was flat plastic. I don’t remember now for sure but I think the box was cardboard about 5”x5”x2”.
    My first and last foray into ordering from magazine ads.

    How about the ads for starting your own business selling greeting cards?

    This had always bugged me - they noted the dimensions of the box in the ad and I couldn’t understand how all that could possibly fit haha!

    The original might be good too! Especially if it is illustrated.
