Howdy Doody COLGATE Dental Cream toothpaste advertisement
Howdy Doody COLGATE Dental Cream toothpaste advertisement
"Hey Kids!!" yells Howdy Doody on this large die-cut heavy cardboard advertisement for Colgate Dental Cream. It offers two different toys, a photo printer or a disguise kit, in exchange for two bits and an empty Colgate toothpaste box (or both toys for 50 cents and two boxes...do the math, it works out!) A rare find for collectors of Howdy Doody or advertising ephemera.

original Twister game by Milton Bradley
original Twister game by Milton Bradley
In 1966, the Milton Bradley Company released a new game called Twister. It was the first game that used players’ bodies as playing pieces, requiring them to bend and stretch in challenging positions. The object of the game was to outmaneuver your opponents by placing your hands and feet on the colored circles as directed by the spinner. To begin, each player places one foot on a yellow circle and the other foot on a blue circle that are nearest their Twister end. Spin the spinner to find out if you move a hand or foot and to which color. But watch out! Anyone who falls, or lets an elbow or a knee touch the mat, is out of the game. The winner is the last player who is able to stay balanced on the mat.

Milton Bradley had low expectations for Twister's success and at first, game sales were slow. But an appearance on the “Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson changed everything. On May 3, 1966, Carson played a game of Twister with his guest for that evening, Eva Gabor. The audience went wild with laughter as the two celebrities stretched their bodies into unusual positions, challenging each other’s dexterity. The sight of Johnny sprawled on the mat with Eva Gabor sent Americans rushing to stores to buy their own Twister game. Later that year, 3 million copies of the game were sold to households across America. Milton Bradley had a winner on their hands!!

Offered here is a fabulous and rare original Twister game from 1966. It appears gently used and complete with spinner.
