Beautiful Find - View Master (Retro)


I was strolling around Checkers the other day.  I was specifically looking for black pepper, when I looked up at the shelf and was instantly blasted into the past.  I found a View Master.  You know, those binocular looking toys with a round photo reel in it?  It's so cool and retro, I had to buy it.





My particular View Master has images of animals that pop out in old fashioned 3D.  It's like my eyes are going on safari - so darn cool!

 

Apparently, the View Master was invented shortly after the colour photo.  Models were made for both adults and children and often depicted pictures of tourist sites.  


What toys are you most nostalgic about?  Tell me, I want to know!
