A gift brought home from a business trip when I was a kid, this Gum Parker has been with me a long time. I used it a few times before figuring out that gum that has been “parked” is definitely not worth chewing.

In my hand so you can see the size.

    Really cute! I love gum catchers though I agree that I would rarely think about putting it back in my mouth once the gum is parked.

    That face is killing me. I love all the uses of the straight lines.

    I have three or four gumcatchers. Here are two of my favorites: https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2009/04/11/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-catchers-mitt-for-spit-ball-gum/ and https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2010/10/27/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-–-gum-shoe-gum-catcher-3/

    I cannot believe my eyes! I was just telling my 9 year old son about the gum parker that I had when I was a child as I was peeling his gum off the dresser. I decided to do a google search to see if they were still in existence, and found your site. I had the exact same kitty cat gum parker back in 1980! Wish I still did!
