Ring-a-ding ding…

Having problems reading the subtle hints towards passion from your lover? Your problems are solved! With these Bedtime Bells, there will be no question of intentions – “Ring-a-ding ding, It’s Time to Swing!” But how does it work? Why, it’s simple – ring when ready! The His and Hers bells say “Come and Get It!” on them in case you still didn’t get the message. I like how the Mrs. is dainty and dolled up with make up and a negligee whereas the Mr. is sporting polka-dot jammies and a lecherous smile that show a clearly loving and respectful attitude towards the lady in his life.

This fine piece of romantic whimsy was made in 1968 by the A. Freed Novelty company in N.Y.C.

    I have a collection of these bedroom signs but most of them are made out of wood and have an arrow that spins around the dial and lands on things like “too tired”, “I’m in the mood right now” and “If I’m not there in 10 minutes start without me”. Most of them are called something like Bedroom Mood Meters. I literally have one attached to my headboard.

    I’ve never seen one with bells on. What’s with her bell being smaller than his?

    I love all the music notes taking the edge off the word “Swing”.
