1949 Atomic Energy Lab-Toy auf Ebay

atomenergylab

Vor ein paar Jahren bloggte ich über das Atomic Energy Lab, einem Spielset für Kinder aus dem Jahr 1949. Jetzt kann man so ein Teil bei Ebay ersteigern, noch steht der Preis bei 4150 Dollar, der dürfte aber noch um einiges steigen, denn das Teil ist eine echte Rarität.

In 27 years in the toy business we have never even heard of an example before. In any condition. After all everyone was building bomb shelters and scared to death of anything nuclear and yet gilbert decided that this would be a great item for kids. Parents were probably scared to death to even think of purchasing such a set for fear that their kids might turn green with radiation. Even reading thru the booklet is pretty frightning. Other than some wear on the bottom corners of the case, this set is a museum piece. Infact it should probably go to a history museum. The inside graphics are stellar.
