Here's an unusual item... this is a 1935 "Dux Kino" from Germany... and doesn't that look like an ancient ancestor of the Give-A-Show projector?
Hey, this is the box for the Give-A-Show videos being presented here this month!
Here's an Argentina release of the Give-A-Show projector from the early 1980s, with Super Powers, Flintstones, Scooby Doo, AND Strawberry Shortcake!
Chad Valley Winnie-The-Pooh set!
1961 Chad Valley Give-A-Show Projector set -- and no, it did not project that large an image from that close!
Chad Valley Aristocats!
Chad Valley Thunderbirds!
This Donald Duck projector is a closer relative to the Easy-Show Projector! I actually own two of these right now, although one is missing some parts. As I'm writing this, I have yet to actually try the complete one out!
Disney Film Strip Projector! This may use film strips similar to the hand-held "Movie Viewers" that were popular until sometime in the 1970s.
Fortuna was one of those companies from Hong Kong (also produced the same under the "Spectrum" name) that copied not only the Give-A-Show Projector, but also the View-Master Projector!
As proof that the Give-A-Show Projector (or at least its basic form) never goes away for long, here's two more recent toys... based on High School Musical and the last Indiana Jones movie!
Going back to the vintage stuff, here's a Lionel Projector that competed with the Give-A-Show!
Magna-Slide Projector I actually own!
Power Rangers Projector and extra Slide Pack! Sadly, I do own one of these... and it's one of the worst examples of this kind of toy, in my opinion -- no story at all, just individual scenes! One day, when I'm in a grumpy mood anyway, remind me to post the video here...
