From Junior's Toybox - "They Came from Outer Space"


With the imminent possibility of an outer space menace threatening to invade American soil, your first priority is to assure your family's survival. “A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them."

It is with the highest priority that we teach our sons and our daughters these words:

"Watch Out!" "Always be alert" and to "Always be prepared."

Ideally we should begin our children's training at the youngest possible age...

We do this through their toys.

Sweet! I saw a similar friction toy flying saucer and wanted to bid on it, but . . . arg I have to let some things pass in order to justify the stuff I do get lol...

The friction toy saucer is one of the more recently made (maybe about 15 years ago?) tin toys that China has been knocking out, but it fits in nicely with the vintage goodness.

Wise words! Hence the wide proliferation of ray guns during the Thirties, Forties, and Fifties. "C'mon Timmy, show me how you load the uranium clips. Great job, let's get an ice cream!" Because you never know when those ornery Martians are going to act up.

Of course, you don't see too many space guns these days. Wonder when the Martians are going to realize this...
