This is a well used vintage 1960s View-Master. I remember the fun I had as a kid entering the three-dimensional worlds offered by this toy.
My particular favourite View-Master reel was this 1965 Barbie’s Around the World Trip. I was fascinated by all of the spectacular locations travelled to by Barbie, Skipper, Midge and the perfect boyfriend Ken.
On the cover of the reel packet, see Barbie surf in Hawaii. See Ken get ready for a dunking.
Hey, hey, then there’s the Monkees! Anyone remember having a crush on Davy? Me neither. In this set of 1967 reels, the boys have an adventure called The Last Wheelbarrow to Pokeyville. Davy gets in a mess with a local yokel girl and has to be rescued by his fellow Monkees from a shotgun wedding! What was my mother thinking?
Who doesn’t love Peanuts? This 1966 reel packet shows the ever lovable Charlie Brown enduring more misfortunes. Snoopy has just ruined Charlie Brown’s attempt to get Pig-Pen out in a game of baseball.
Anyone have memories of looking into other worlds with their View-Master?
