The adverts in comics are sometimes almost as interesting as the
comics themselves (at least). Looking through some back issues of
TV CENTURY 21, I spied these ads, which I thought those who had
lived through the era might like to see again. So, fasten your seatbelts,
as we make a lightning-quick tour of 1965 and remind ourselves
of just what was available back in the day.
Incidentally, I still have my Parachute FIREBALL XL5 toy, two
Bump'n'go DALEKS, and five ROLYKINS, seen in the page above.
And I used to have at least one of the Bagatelles.
Got two of the above mini Dalek badges as well.
There's a photo of me as a kid somewhere on this blog
with one of the above Dalek toys
Also got two boxed original 1965 ASTON MARTIN DB5s.
Which ones did you have as a child - and how many of them
do you still own? Feel free to share your reminiscences in the
comments section. Go on - you know you want to.
