Hingees


Okay, here's one that even I've never heard of as far as I can recall. Hingees. What in the world were Hingees? This mid-1940's ad makes them look and sound like pop-up books mixed with comic books. Pop-up Comics! Wow! Wait'll Bill Black hears about THAT idea!

maybe 'hingees' were the books that had the pull tabs to make things move and/or appear...

Hingees were little figures, comic strip characters, that needed no glue or scissors to assemble. They were assembled by fold tabs.
