VIEW-MASTER… worlds within two windows

VM Sawyers 2

I remember my red View-Master from the late ’70s, happily viewing Planet of the Apes and Disney film images. The View-Master is over 70 years old and is still made today (currently by Fisher-Price). It continues to feature the latest images from TV and film and was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 1999. There is a nice little write-up about it here: View-Master Toy Hall of Fame
