I have referred to my collection of old view master reels from my childhood in the post Sisters Suitcase. I am particularly fond of my 'Peanuts' & 'Herby' reels, but I haven't been able to find the actual view master machine. So I was delighted when I saw Nelly was selling one on her blog. It came to me in the original packaging as a Walt Disney Anniversary gift pack, with the same view master that I had as a child, plus 7 other reels to view. They include 'Chip & Dale' the chipmunks, Mickey Mouse, Rumpelstiltskin & a few other Grimm fairy tales, 3 Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White & Zorro & Bugs Bunny. I can't figure out what year they were released, but I guess it would have been the late 1970's. It's funny now to think this was once a cutting edge gift, & that I got so much pleasure from looking at those little 3D pictures. Life was so simple then....but that just means I'm getting old!

7 new (to me) reels come in a snazzy little reel case!
