I’ll help you get a Daisy for Christmas – Red Ryder (Dec, 1940)
This is a great ad. Kids who really want a BB gun for christmas write in and Red Ryder will send them little “this is what you should get me for christmas” reminder cards. Then they just hide them all over the house where their parents are sure to find them.
I also really like the line “If you HAVE money now (or can get it) buy your Daisy NOW”. You know how you can get it. Mr Jones down the street said he’d give you a shiny nickel everytime you sat on his lap. A small price to pay for a brand new Red Ryder Golden Banded 1000-Shot Saddle Carbine isnt it?

Pint-Size Tractor Has Gas Engine (Sep, 1948)
This looks damn fun. Also I love the fact that it uses a washing machine engine. I want a gas powered washer!
Pint-Size Tractor Has Gas Engine
Driving his own gasoline-engine tractor, three-year-old Gus Dobert of Nashville, Tenn., is the envy of youngsters of his neighborhood. Made by his father, a machinist, the small tractor has a two-cycle washing-machine engine. Power is transmitted by a V-belt and sprocket chain. The gear ratio insures lots of power but little speed. The clutch pedal tightens the belt on the pulleys.
