King-Size Latex Toys! ;)

September 1963

X-Men #1

I don’t know about you, but when I hear “king-size latex toys,” the first thing that comes to mind isn’t exactly “good clean fun for every youngster!” I guess 1963 was just a simpler, more innocent time.


These toys remind me a lot of Flipit from 1980 – you throw them, and then they land on their feet! Can you even imagine how exciting that must be?! Because I can, and it doesn’t really seem like something that would be terribly entertaining.


(And just for the record – no, I do not own an original copy of X-Men #1, but I do own a 1993 reprint that includes all the original ads.)
