Here is a picture of me from 1967 or 1968 wearing a Portable Hair Dryer like the one Sharon posted a while back. I used to watch alot of Beanie and Cecil reruns, and I think someone had given me a Cecil tub toy as a get well gift for breaking my arm while roller skating. I wanted to be in the Roller Derby when I grew up. My Mom had sewn the outfit I”m wearing.

    I loved my portable hairdryer as well. I got it for Chanukah one year. It used to absolutely burn my ears and I wasn’t nuts about how the plastic started to smell after a while but what it did for the bouffants and flips I had at the time was sensational!

    Sharon’s hairdryer is at https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/05/19/portable-hair-dryer-only-as-far-as-the-cord-allows/

    Love the little outfit your mom sewed. And the fact that you have a broken arm, which couldn’t have been pleasant at the time, makes the photo even better looking at it now.

    Holy crap! i used to play with my Mothers hairdryer as well!!! I used to pretend I was blasting off to another dimension when the head piece would puff up! I only wish I had a pic of me wearing it.

    Love this Planet J!!!

    I had to come back to this picture. It’s one of my favorites.
