Another Erector Set Ad


Vintage ads for Erector Sets are always fun. This one concerns me, though, in that it may well have led to the beginnings of the Daleks or Cybermen or some other evil metal army! Or maybe the Metal Men?


Note also that the ad is exclusively aimed at boys...not girls. Hmmm...at the risk of getting off-color here, doesn't it SOUND like they're actually marketing to women here? I mean, "Look at all the spectacular buzz-with-action models you can build with Erector."

Don't mind me. I've been sick.

Oh, and wouldn't we all love to have that SUPERMAN book?
