In 1964 most dime stores ,( "dollar "stores now due to inflation), sold plastic female figures of ladies dressed for different occasions. I have noticed in my collecting of such items that similar male figures for boys were usually in worse shape. I wonder why. NOT! We weren't really destructive it's just that our imaginations were more inclined to see just how much tests we could put these toys to before they succumbed to our administrations. These toys were priced at 19 cents each. Unreal eh? They were known as ,"Campus Cuties".This first set are named from left to right: SHOPPING ANYONE?, LAZY AFTERNOON, STORMY WEATHER and ON THE BEACH.
The next set of "Campus Cuties" are named NITEY NITE, LODGE PARTY, DINNER FOR TWO and
ON THE TOWN.
Trivia: A box of Girl Guide cookies was 25 cents when they debuted in 1936.
Did You Know? Elephants can recognize groups of people by their specific smell, colour and the style of their clothing.
