Fun Visors and Give-A-Show Slide!

funvisors_miscchars.JPG

Here's a box of "Fun Visors," sun visors with licensed characters on 'em, including Spider-Man!

giveashow_spiderman

And here's a Spider-Man Give-A-Show Slide! I'm a huge Give-A-Show Projector fan (as you know if you follow the Give-A-Show Blog! If you're not familiar with it, it's basically a slide projector that runs on three size "D" batteries, and you'd insert a slide strip (as seen above) into the projector to watch on a convenient wall! They came out in 1960, and the line lasted until the early 80s. I think this one came from 1967 or 1968.

Musical TV Toy and Flip-It!

dcsh_musicaltv

I have no idea if this was licensed or not... I suspect not, because of having Spider-Man in there with Superman and Batman! This looks like the Fisher-Price TV toy that you'd wind up, and as the picture scrolled past, the lenticular lens cover would make it appear as though there was movement in the picture!

Next, here's the Spider-Man Flip-It toy, which I remember seeing advertised in Gold Key comics!

Jigglers and Mego Metal Spider-Man!

dc_msh_jigglers.jpg

No, not Jello Jigglers... I think these were produced by Ben Cooper (yes, the costume people), and as you see, there's a Spider-Man jiggler amongst them!

And here's the Spider-Man metal figure that Mego produced (they also did Superman, Batman and Hulk figures like this).

Mego's "The Mangler"!

comicactionmangler1.JPG

The Mangler was a vehicle for the Comic Action Heroes line, and came with the Goblin, as seen above...

comicactionmangler2.JPG

It was designed so it would "eat up" the Goblin figure...

...and spit out a "flattened" Goblin.
