I was absolutely obsessed with this toy when I was a kid.  What kills me about shopping at my local dump’s “gift hut” is that so many of the local and elderly residents dump off the best vintage toys sometimes.  I think that they clean out those basements and are finally getting rid of their grown kids toys.  I ordered this every year from the Sears catalog.

What one would do is open the hat that Mickey is holding, it acts like a little door.  You put the colorform thingie in there, turn the wheel and each little colorform piece reveals a secret or another pic than what is on the actual colorform.

Every colorform piece is still here.  Lots of good ones here.

    Growing up, I just missed Colorforms. My cousin who was two years younger than me had them and I got into peeling them off but I never had my own set until I was in my 40’s and found a Julia Colorforms set. http://www.flickr.com/photos/stellaspacedesigns/4640739508/

    And Mickey was always too popular for me to get into as a collection. But I do love these because there’s a lot of things here that don’t seem particularly Disney. And it’s in great condition. Crazy it was at the dump!
