Back in the late 70’s View Master ruled the children’s entertainment world.  Before there was Nintendo – there was the View Master!  Take a disc, slide it into the top and pull the little arm on the side – and wheeeee! – you’re off into a magical world of still pictures that repeat after the 8th or 9th picture… Well, understandably, View Master had to up the ante – and up it they did!  They invented the TALKING View Master!  Slip the disc into the top, there’s also a small record type thing attached to the disc – and as you look at the tiny still pictures you can also hear a story that goes along with it!  But not regular old pictures – 3D pictures! – but not real 3D pictures, just ones that look 3D.  These sets had 3 discs and came with a little booklet.  The booklet has a small story – Herb Trimpe images – and tells you how to hear the rest of the story.  Man, the 70’s had the greatest toys ever!  EVER!

The Whole Set!

The Whole Set!

 No post tomorrow – have a good New Year!  See you in 2009!  Man, I can’t wait for Bowen’s 2009 run!
