Flipit – Possibly One of the Least Exciting Toys Ever

April 1980

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7

Much like Snippys, I think Flipits are banking on the appeal of their characters to sell the product, because the product itself seems… well… kinda lame.

That’s right – you throw it, and it lands on its feet! It sounds like seconds of fun for the entire family! Were kids’ standards really that low in 1980?

And by the way, has anyone out there ever heard of Super Chick before? Because I sure haven’t.

Encouraging Kids to Play With Scissors

April 1980

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7

What can make even the most mundane objects fun? Cartoon characters!! That’s why Snippys are so much more than mere office/school supplies! Yes, these “FABULOUS CARTOON SCISSORS” make it fun to cut stuff up!

I love that they’re encouraging you to collect these… ’cause if there’s one thing that kids love to collect, it’s… umm… office supplies…?
