Cool Stuff!

Looks like a bunch of Superman stuff this time around...
superman_actionifiguredisplay
While Ben Cooper is mostly remembered for their Halloween costumes for kids, it's all too easy to forget that they also produced rubber danglers as well! Here's a display box with some of their Superman danglers.

superman_ahiparachutist
AHI did a lot of parachutist toys, and some of them made sense. Well, two of them made sense: Batman and Spider-Man. The others? Not so much so... like their Hulk, Planet of the Apes, and Mr. Spock figures... but perhaps their Superman one is the most ridiculous of them all, because come on, Superman can fly!

superman_ahizingwing
Here's another AHI toy, the Superman Zing-Wing... the picture on the disc is pretty distorted, eh?

superman_amazingworld
Somewhere around here, I have a copy of the Amazing World of Superman one-shot... appropriately enough, I picked it up when my first wife and I went to Metropolis, IL, for their Superman Celebration!

superman_armourbeefpromowatch
This Superman watch was a promotional item offered by Armour Beef, and given the Superman picture on the face, I'd imagine it was from the 1980s.

superman_aurorapuzzle
Aurora dipped into the puzzle market with their Poster-Puzzle line, giant-size floor puzzles with licensed characters. Here's the Superman one, which uses the same artwork that was done for their reissue of the Superman model kit in the 1970s.

superman_ball
I'm not sure how much sense a Superman bouncing ball makes, unless someone figured there'd be confusion with the Super Ball!

superman_bank74
1974 Superman Bank, probably from Mego!

superman_bencoopercape
Here's another Ben Cooper item, which I'm guessing is pretty much the same cape they sold with their Superman costume!

superman_bend-a-bles_1960s
This 1960s Superman Bend-A-Ble is even worse looking than the Ben Cooper dangler this installment started with!

superman_brookdalefordpin
I have no idea how Brookdale Ford managed to license Superman for this pinback button in 1974... it's a fairly rare piece of memorabilia!

superman_cards
Here's Nasta's Superman playing card set, and I'd imagine that given the card art, they produced cards backed with the other Super Friends as well.

superman_cartoonarama1
superman_cartoonarama2
I'm not sure if the Superman Cartoon-a-Rama kit really included Wonder Woman, or if that one was from a different set. Basically, this kit was a way for kids to make their own homemade animation cels. I have a Batman set myself, which I scanned and posted here some time back. Oddly, instead of using artwork originally done for animation, the set seems to just use standard licensing art!

superman_cheese1
superman_cheese2
Superman Imitation Cheese Spread? Yep, it existed. I wonder if they'd done a Captain Marvel one if they would've made the cheese red?

superman_colorbynumber

superman_erasers_early70s
Some pretty cool Superman erasers here from the early 1970s!

superman_flickerrings

superman_flyingnoizzballoon
There's been a number of Superman items I've posted photos of that I'd like to add to my collection, but this one, the Flying Noizz Balloon, isn't one of them.

superman_giantcoloringart1
superman_giantcoloringart2
superman_giantcoloringart3
Some of the original art for a Superman Giant Coloring Book!

superman_greatcomicbookcollection
The Great Superman Comic Book Collection... I wonder what stories were included in this?

This Superman board game was made in Greece!
