This vintage toy was a box top premium from Kellog's Cereal. There were three different divers. I have only two. I will get the third some day. We would fill the metal cap with baking powder, insert in bottom hole and put them in our bath. They would immediately sink to the bottom and then swim back up. They would dive and surface about 20 -30 times. They were very entertaining and still are. The yellow diver is Flame Cutting Torch Man. The green diver is the Obstacles Scout. I believe they are from the late 50's or early 60's. Hope I put a smile on your face.

Question: Who invented swim fins?
Answer:  Benjamin franklin.

Trivia: In general frogs hop faster than toads. Just in case you were wondering.
