Post Cereal Flintstones Camera

For the past couple of Fridays Toys & Stuff has been covering the Corgi Flintstones vehicles which came out in the early 1980s and one would assume - rightly - that today we'd finish the third and final car in the series. But I caught a crummy head cold and haven't felt like doin' much this week. I just haven't gotten around to photographing the last car - sorry! So we're gonna look at a toy that I've already got pictures for, the Post Cereal Flintstones Camera, a kind of Stone Age Polaroid. It's a simple plastic box with a double-wound rubber band around the middle, to which is attached a folded picture of one of the Flintstones characters. Push the picture into the box, latch it, and push the lid open to see the picture pop out. It's a nifty little cereal box treat. Me & My Beautiful Wife Enjoys it .From The Berg's :)

Two of the available characters

Both box halves assembled

Rubber band in place

The rubber band isn't shown here but the two halves of the picture need to be placed within the grooves on the top and bottom of the box
