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?

    but that’s half the fun!

    An unassembled, rusted one of these is now on ebay for $35 (6 bids so far)

    None of these guns held anywhere near 1000 BBs! More like 800……that’s advertising!
