Strange Change tv ad

for the theme this month I'll be posting unusual commercials from 'round the world and different eras. I don't watch much actual television these days, so I don't see many new commercials. I'm sure there are some good ones, so let me know if there are.

we begin today with a great old one, Mattel's Strange Change machine. boy, this commercial would have worked on me. I love this toy (see here) and never even SAW the ad. it's just that cool. they don't make toys like this any more, that's for sure.

It worked on me. I loved that toy.

I loved mine, and even though I only had four cubes, played with it til the heating element went out. I have two of the machines now, and one still works.
sadly, the box has now disintegrated. I'd like to find someone to make me a plaster cast of the base. and paint it!
