Found It: Eyeballs and Trampolines

So, my great aunts had some funny habits, and one of them was throwing money away at "natural healing" and door-to-door solicitors.  This little gem was mail order, I think.


Looks sciency.

He is so happy!  Work those eyes!
Yes, that's a cassette tape and an eye patch.
Looks like a dart board.

Don't be surprised if some of these images show up on a clock in the future.
I've been looking for a good goat outline.

Dominoes for the eyes.

"....do it to it!"  !!!
Overall this is just a funny thing.  I haven't really delved into the history of this, but here's a bio of the Rebound guy, Albert E. Carter

 I think I'm going to put this on my Etsy site once I get through it, but I just snagged a spot in the River Market Antique Mall in the River Market area of Kansas City, and I'm running around like a crazy person trying to put shelving together and accumulate enough stuff from the farm to make a good showing.  So far I haven't had to buy a single thing for display...I'll post about that later.  But I'm trying to decide what to take to my space and what to keep online.  Turns out it takes a lot of product to make an 8 x 8 foot space not look empty.  Fingers crossed I can make it all work.
